antique pocket watch, gold chain, brass track

“The 2014 work titled 'Ouroboros' is composed of three elements: a brass track in the ceiling, a gold chain, and an antique pocket watch. The pocket watch has hands that indicate minutes and seconds, but the hour hand has been removed. Suspended from the ceiling of the gallery by a delicate wire, it executes an almost imperceptible movement of rotation in space, turning at the speed of one revolution per hour. 'Ouroboros' presents yet another exploration of the relation between time, space and their possible configuration. The title of the piece alludes to the symbolic representation of wholeness or infinity, which commonly consists of a snake or a dragon swallowing its own tail."—Eleven Rivington
