Douglas Gordon’s 1993 art installation 24 Hour Psycho inaugurates the new Hurley Gallery in the arts complex. The work consists entirely of an appropriation of Alfred Hitchcock’s classic 1960 film Psycho slowed down to approximately two frames per second, rather than the usual 24. As a result, a full viewing of the film lasts for exactly 24 hours, rather than the original 109 minutes. The installation was an important work in Gordon’s early career and is noted for introducing themes common to his work, such as recognition and repetition, time and memory, complicity and duplicity, authorship and authenticity, darkness and light. 24 Hour Psycho will be on view September 29 through October 22.
