csilla klenyánszki captures the passage of time through her body movements

artist csilla klenyánszki presents ‘to make a time’, a photographic series based on twelve physically and mentally challenging – one hour – performances  that test her capability for creating order and finding harmony. the physical body –  with the right leg used as the minute arm, and the left leg as the hour arm of a clock – shows the passage of time, transforming every single minute into a new posture.

these exercises called  ‘flexible hours’ deal with different forms of time-based balance, while klenyánszki explores her mental and physical equilibrium. ‘the work looks at the passage of time, not just as a symbol or an idea, but as a subjective experience; I need to find time to make time. making times takes time, ‘ as the artist describes it. ‘720 different positions are building up the 12 hour clock. to make the work I am literally racing against my own biological clock, as the performer needs to be relatively young to full fill the choreography’.
