Clock With One Hand

Kwan Sheung Chi’s work is known to operate between comedy and social critique. What seems absurd and a pun by the artist slowly reveals itself as a surrealist interpretation of contemporary value systems and a re-interpretations of familiar concepts. The video Clock With One Hand is an illustration of time without ever indicating actual time. The clock captured on film has only a single second arm. Hence, the time shown is always accurate, and yet, it never illustrates the present. It is a clock telling the passing of time, opposed to actual time. The artwork belongs to the Déjà Vu collection curated by LEAP LABS.

Kwan Sheung Chi lives and works in Hong Kong.
