In the order that the images appear above, here are some descriptions encapsulating the idea behind each piece.
UC Davis Protest, 2011
I find it disturbing when people in positions of power abuse it and lose any sense of humanity. I was shocked to see the footage of the pepper spraying of people sitting in a peaceful protest at UC Davis. I felt a need to capture this incident in time.
Love and Protest, 2011
In these times of peaceful protest in the face of armed repression, a protester and soldier kiss.
The Beautiful Game, 2011
A footballer holds aloft a trophy in the form of a pound symbol (£) as three prospective WAGs fight for his attention.
Comfortably Oblivious, 2011
Here two people fail to give up their seat to an elderly woman with walking stick and bags walking round and round.
CCTV cameras and three people photographing and videoing. Everyone is capturing everyone.
Love and Protest, UC Davis Protest and Captured are on display at La Scatola Gallery until the 10th of January.
Comfortably Oblivious and The Beautiful Game are on display along with The Sitting Man and Unrequited Handshake at Phillips de Pury until 31 January 2012.
I found Mr. Wilcox’s website as a result of my usual wandering about the internet. However, it is not everyday that one stumbles upon such delicate creations.
The pieces are quite fittingly entitled: Moments in Time as they attempt to embody some of the more pressing social issues we are faced with as of late. Wilcox manages the selection of watches and materials sensitively and furthermore carries the red color of the second hand through to the figurines in a way that balances the expression within said “moment” with the rigidity of the clocks.
As if the photos were not aesthetically seductive enough, time too plays an important role in the experience of the pieces. The fact is, the clocks are all quite functional and thus we are confronted not simply by the message behind any of the given moments, but also by the their relationship to time. These moments, embodied within the sculptures, will live on tick by tick.
If you are anywhere near the aforementioned galleries, pleas visit them and do justice to Mr. Wilcox.
