Sealed copies of the first edition from 2003. English texts, 200 pages.
“This is the definitive volume of Christian Markley’s oeuvre, produced on the occasion of his 2003 survey exhibition at the UCLA Hammer Museum. Sound, and our culturally determined reactions to it, form the basis of Marclay’s genre- and media-crossing art. Fascinated by the translation of the audible into the visible, the space between what we hear and see informs his work; his sources of inspiration include telephone conversations, movies, reviews of musical performances, and CD and album covers. This comprehensive volume presents 20 years’ of Marclay’s influential sculpture, collage, installation, photography and video, exploring it within the contexts of music, art history and popular culture.“
