Andy Hope 1930

«Time is the neuro-psychological structure we may have inherited from the distant past, along with other no-longer-needed organs like the appendix and the little toe, the saline concentration of our blood streams.»

J.G. Ballard


The origin of this publication is a grandfather clock found in the back of an old antique shop in Paris. Andy Hope 1930 transformed the clock into “Summoning”. This sculpture was the centerpiece of his “Time Banners” exhibition at Nomadenoase, organized and produced in 2005 by Silverbridge. The book contains a meticulously rendered reduced-scale model of the “Summoning” sculpture. The interior of the case contains a framed original ink drawing by Andy Hope 1930, different for each copy. The preparatory sketches are collected in a notebook kept in a folder emblazoned with the “Summoning” logo.
