Christian Marclay

For more than thirty years, Christian Marclay has been exploring the connections between the visual and the audible, creating works in a wide range of media, including sculpture, video, photography, collage, music, and performance. His works have been exhibited all over the world. Marclay first toured Japan in 1987 as a duo with vocalist David Moss, and has since regularly exhibited his visual work across the country. In 2011, Marclay received the Golden Lion award for best artist at the 54th Venice Biennale for his twenty-four-hour virtuosic video The Clock. First premiering in London in 2010, The Clock has since been exhibited worldwide in more than twenty venues. As a pioneering DJ using records and turntables as musical instruments to create sound collages, Marclay has performed and recorded both solo and in collaboration with numerous musicians since 1979, including John Zorn, Elliott Sharp, Otomo Yoshihide, Butch Morris, Shelley Hirsch, Okkyung Lee, Mats Gustafsson, and Lee Ranaldo.
