Artist Alex Chinneck has tied a grandfather clock in a knot

Exclusively for Liberty London, Alex Chinneck has transformed a grandfather clock into a unique contemporary sculpture. Seemingly achieving the impossible, the British artist has twisted the old timepiece and tied a knot in the middle, “breathing new life and eccentricity into an antique object.”

“My two passions are creating sculptures and collecting antiques. [This piece] unties these interests in a playful yet technically complex way. The grandfather clock takes the idea of re-imagining and re-purposing a traditional household item onto another level and we’ve been able to produce a sculptural object which is also a fully functioning time-piece.”

Titled “Growing up gets me down”, the piece is now on display and available to purchase from the iconic central London retailer. Previous works from Chinneck include a melting wax house and a sliding house in Margate.
