Christian Marclay works across numerous visual media - sculpture, installation, performance, found object, and collage - alongside music and its artefacts, to create a unique, multidisciplinary art. Also a musician, composer and DJ, in his visual works he sometimes evokes the memory of music, such as The Beatles (1989), a pillow crocheted out of Beatles audiotapes. Elsewhere Marclay examines the cliched images of music-making, for example those found on LP record covers: charismatic, classical music conductors; anonymous, smiling Easy Listening girls; sultry rock stars. These are then carefully sewn together to form hybrid, often humorous, 'spliced'-together figures (Body Mix, 1980-ongoing). Museum, UCLA and travels to the Barbican Art Gallery, London, in February 2005. The highlight of this exhibition is Marclay's tour de force Video Quartet (2003), a four-screen installation combining (mostly) Hollywood film clips associated with music, edited together with virtuoso precision. others, Marclay has presented his unique sound-and-vision at the Whitney Biennial, New York, 1991 and 2002; the Venice Biennale, 1995 and 1999, among many key international exhibitions.
