dc.description.abstractChris has a 36-year association with the clock. The object was originally his Nan’s and Chris remembers it sitting elegantly on her sideboard. The clock is decorated with a robed female figure and is inspired by the neoclassical era. When she died, Chris inherited the object and created a similar vignette with the sideboard and clock in his own home. Recently, the clock was knocked over by his cats and broke into three pieces. Repairer Rohan Nicol has wrapped the clock up in cloth and bound it. By wrapping it he alludes to museum practices of the past - of taking, hoarding and storing antiquities from the classical era. This transformation cloaks the object from sight, proposing that while memories may still exist they are no longer necessarily attached to form.
