Clockshower Gordon Matta-Clark


Clockshower Gordon Matta-Clark
1973, 13.50 min. color, silent 16mm film on video
In this film of one of his most daring performances , Matta-Clark climbed to the top of the Clocktower of a 13 storey building in New York and washed, shaved and brushed his teeth while suspended over the streets in front of the huge clockface.
Currently on show at the Barbican. www.barbican.org.uk is a great exhibition featuring Laurie Anderson, Trisha Brown, Gordon Matta-Clark’s works. The three leading figures active in downtown Manhatten during the 1970 explored and developed new relationships to the urban environment. The exhibition includes live performances and I highly recommend to go and see it 3March-22May 2011.
