The 175, 218 VHS video cassettes that make up the body of Claire Healy and Sean Cordeiro’s Life Span sculpture, form a solid block inside the deconsecrated chapel at the Ludoteca. The combined running time of these cassettes, if watched one after the other, would be 60.1 years, the average human life span in 1976 – the year that the VHS was released. This work stops people in their tracks when they enter the exhibition space, staring with mouths open and dwarfed by the size of the giant sculpture. The most common question asked is “Is it really solid?” The answer is yes, absolutely! Cue more jaw dropping and eye widening.
