Exhibition: THE SOCRATES ANNUAL
Street Clocks, 2017
Custom-made street clocks
55 x 23 x 13 inches and 79 x 23 x 13 inchesSwanson pairs two street clocks of contrasting heights that correspond to her and her partner’s statures—4 feet and 6 feet. By adapting clocks typically found in communal metropolitan spaces to function as portraiture, the artist challenges assumptions about normative size in the public sphere while also producing a whimsical image.
