Volkmar Klien

Slowly and insistently the ticking of the pendulum clock grows louder until the sound fills the space, accompanied by the steady unfurling of a peacock fan. Volkmar Klien’s performance apparatus strives for beauty, for magnitude, for volume, and for dominance. It is to be presented in the Carlone Contemporary exhibition series at the Upper Belvedere.

Anschwellen – Abschwellen
In Volkmar Klien’s performance apparatus Anschwellen – Abschwellen, the ticking of a pendulum clock slowly but surely swells to produce an all-pervading sound that, at its height, fills the Baroque Carlone Hall, all the while accompanied by the gradual unfurling of a peacock fan. It represents a striving for beauty, a crescendo to unimaginable magnitude, volume, and dominance. Then the peacock feathers subside and the sound ebbs away, back to the beginning and the constant ticking, an order imposed by humanity on the unfathomable flow of time.
