87 HOURS OF SCULPTURE by Holger Pohl is a large stop watch used at competitions such as track and field events to prominently measure the time of the action. “Rijeka’s clock“ will stretch time and play with these experiences: 87 hours in 2 months. Positioned in the street in front of the Museum entrance, the clock will start with a normal 87 hours countdown, the Copula time, changing the rhythm after about 2 days the countdown will slow down proportionally to the regular time in a way that it will take several weeks to eventually reach zero. The clock has 9 units, including a thousandth of a second which allows a viewable motion even with very slow slow-motion. By measuring time is a different rhythm, 87 hours  of sculpture toys with the usual calendar time measurements. At the same time humorous and wistful, it grows into an exhausting countdown whose end cannot be predicted.

87 SATI SKULPTURE Holgera Pohla predstavlja veliku štopericu kakva se koristi na sportskim natjecanjima za mjerenje trajanja utakmice. “Riječki sat” rastegnut će vrijeme i poigrati se s tim doživljajem: 87 sati u dva mjeseca, koliko približno traje projekt Spajalica. Postavljen na ulicu pred sam ulaz u zgradu Muzeja, sat počinje normalno odbrojavati 87 sati, vrijeme trajanja Spajalice, izmjenjujući tempo nakon otprilike dva dana kada se odbrojavanje usporava u skladu s redovnim vremenom, tako da tek nakon nekoliko tjedana  konačno pokazuje nulu. Sat ima devet jedinica, uključujući i tisućinku sekunde, što omogućuje vidljivost kretanja tj. prolaska vremena u krajnje usporenom ritmu. Mjereći vrijeme drugačijim ritmom, 87 sati skulpture proigrava uobičajeno, kalendarsko bilježenje vremena. Na istovremeno duhovit i sjetan način,  postaje iscrpljujuće odbrojavanje čiji se kraj ne može predvidjeti.
