This tape is an exercise in spatial perception, using mirror reflections of people and their movements.
Producer: Carlotta Schoolman
In this film of one of his most daring performances, Matta-Clark climbed to the top of the Clocktower in New York and washed, shaved and brushed his teeth while suspended over the streets in front of the huge clockface.
This film is a formal investigation of New York's urban architecture. The film was planned to be projected on the exterior facade of a building, and was shown for the first time in the open air exhibition ARCADES and later in the Holly Solomon Gallery.
Please contact the EAI office for exhibitions and acquisitions. Where possible, the Matta-Clark Estate prefers that the works are exhibited from film. In exhibition, City Slivers should be projected into a corner or onto an uneven surface.
