Christian Marclay (b. 1955) is well known for his work in a wide range of media, including sculpture, video, photography, collage, and performance. For more than 30 years, he has been exploring the connections between the visual and the audible, creating works in which these two distinct sensibilities enrich and challenge each other. As a pioneering turntablist, performing and recording music since 1979, his work made a significant impact on the new music scene. He has performed internationally, alone or in collaboration with musicians such as John Zorn, Mats Gustafsson, Okkyung Lee, Butch Morris, Shelley Hirsh, Christian Wolff, Günter Müller, the Kronos Quartet, Sonic Youth, among many others.
