  • A candle holder rendered in stainless steel is mounted onto the wall as an altar panel painting that folds closed to simulate a medical cabinet. The candle supported by the metal structure is pierced by nails at different heights marking time intervals in a contemporary rendition of the ancient candle alarm clock. Deliberately syncretic, the object references themes of ancient ritual and religious practices while addressing modernist values of asepsis. As the candle shortens the melting wax releases the nails onto the cabinet’s metal plate which drop with loud “clings”. This moment marks a sudden fractionalization of an otherwise fluid condition of time. A suspension of a state of temporal leisure into that of pragmatic count; palpably evidencing differences between Henry Bergson’s concepts of “objective time”: the time of watches, timetables, and calendars, with that of “duration” (la durée); lived time, time felt and acted measured by subjective experience.
