Meireles, Cildo (1948-)

With its 6,000 rulers, 1,000 clocks and 500,000 vinyl numbers, Fontes demonstrates the aesthetic of accumulation which is a feature of many of Meireles’s installations. However, the rulers and clocks undermine their very purpose: the order of their numbers and the spacing of their measurements are illogical, so that the ability of these almost-Readymade objects to measure either time or space is subverted.”
