"The Event: Anoynymous Life of Patek Philippe": A Reading with Pedro Neves Marques

  • EFA Project Space 2nd Floor 323 W 39th St New York, NY, 10018 United States

What happens when a Patek Philippe watch lingers between owners? Entering into these moments of suspension prompting questions about time, duration, and the life of objects, Pedro Neves Marques's text "The Anonymous Life of Patek Philippe," published earlier this year, tries out different scenarios. For this reading at EFA Project Space, the artist has invited three readers, Gautam Borooah, Media Farzin and Mariana Silva, to each embody the story of a Patek Philippe wristwatch. This text has been developed in discussion with Joshua Simon in parallel to The Economist/A Decade, a work also featured in Resonance and Repetition.
