One typewriter. Six days. Two hundred and four pages. See Los-Angeles artist Tim Youd re-type Anthony Burgess’s A Clockwork Orange in full as part of his multi-year project to re-type one hundred 20th century classic novels. Exploring the ‘fetishisation of the lives and tools of authors’ Youd’s performance takes place on the same model typewriter it is believed Burgess used to type A Clockwork Orange. An accompanying exhibition, featuring Burgess’s typewriters and one of Tim’s earlier works (Hemingway’s A Farewell to Arms) is open to the public in the Reading Room.
