On&By Christian Marclay explores the work of Christian Marclay (b. 1955) who has explored the interplay between sound, audio cultures and art across a diversity of media: performance, sculpture, photography, collage, musical composition, film, video, and installation. Marclay first became known for sculptures and reassembled readymades generated from fragmented vinyl records and album covers. His multi-screen installations Video Quartet (2002), Crossfire (2007), and The Clock (2010) inspire viewers to contemplate the complexities of time and narrative and the role of sound in experience and representation.
Edited by curator and critic Jean-Pierre Criqui, this volume brings together the artist’s statements and conversations with Bice Curiger, Jan Estep, Russell Ferguson, Douglas Kahn, Frances Richard, Philip Sherburne, Michael Snow, and David Toop. Writings on all aspects of Marclay’s work follow, by Clément Chéroux, Dennis Cooper, Christoph Cox, Jean-Pierre Criqui, Noam M. Elcott, Russell Ferguson, Douglas Kahn, Rahma Khazam, Wayne Koestenbaum, Rosalind Krauss, Thomas Y. Levin, Tom Morton, Zadie Smith, David Toop, and Rob Young.
LACMA's permanent collection includes The Clock which is shown periodically at the museum.
