Publisher's Synopsis

When his twenty-four-hour film The Clock was awarded the Golden Lion at the fifty-fourth Venice Biennale in 2011, his hour had struck. Yet as an artist, performer, and pioneer of turntablism, the Swiss-American Christian Marclay (*1955) has been famous for his complex oeuvre for more than thirty years. Since then he has translated sounds and music into visible forms in his performances, installations, collages, sculptures, and photographs, revealing sensory experiences in them that his viewers had never dared to experience. Comic books and mangas are the source material for Marclay's most recent works, whose listening experience yet again opens up new dimensions. The extensive monograph not only does justice to the entire spectrum of the artist's multimedia and synaesthetic oeuvre; it also brings previously little known works home to our eyes and our ears. Exhibition: Aargauer Kunsthaus, Aarau, 30.8.2015 - 15.11.2015
