I know that the verb "to insist" has to be followed by a subjunctive in sentences like "I insist that he do it.". However, I do not know if the noun "insistence" behave in the same way. I am not sure which of the two choices listed below is the correct one.
1) His continuous insistence, to see the new apparatus, was quite annoying.
2) His continuous insistence, that he see the new apparatus, was quite annoying.
