In her installation “And I beat the time back to life”, Leonie Felle uses a clock that originally gave time to many people: the former clock tower of the AGFA camerawork in Munich. In Felles installation the number ring is disassembled; the hands turn backwards against time. Instead of the readability of time, this ‘clock’ shows a disorder of time and thus undermines its measurability and controllability. Just as the installation deprives the observer of any objectifiable knowledge of time, it creates a specific time that applies only to this place and to the duration of its viewing. For the duration of his observation, the viewer is thrown back on his radically subjective perception of time.
