Felix Gonzalez-Torres, “Untitled (Perfect Lovers)”, 1991.    The two battery-operated clocks are to be set in unison, but they will eventually, inevitably fall out of sync with one another.

The lovers might measure their lives in the same manner, but the tricks of time will unbalance them.

Felix Gonzalez-Torres Untitled (Perfect Lovers) Clocks, paint on wall. Untitled (Perfect Lovers) consists of two clocks, which start in synchronisation, and slowly, inevitably fall out of time.

“High there, how he rung upon the rein of a wimpling wing In his ecstasy! then off, off forth on swing, As a skate’s heel sweeps smooth on a bow-bend: the hurl and gliding Rebuffed the big wind.
