Ether - Christian Marclay's "Everyday": Christian Marclay + John Butcher + Mark Sanders + Alan Tomlinson
Christian Marclay is one of the world's pre-eminent artists, winning the Golden Lion at the 2011 Venice Biennial for his work "The Clock". In his 30-year career he has also collaborated with musicians including John Zorn, Kronos Quartet and Sonic Youth. At Ether he performs the London premiere of his new work, "Everyday". Short film clips are re-edited and used as a video score as musicians Steve Beresford, John Butcher, Mark Sanders and Alan Tomlinson improvise music that develops alongside the footage.
'I have always enjoyed blurring the boundaries between music and art, sound and image, structure and chaos. The everyday embraces them all.'
'One of the ten most important artists of today'
Praise for Christian Marclay's "The Clock" -
'A Masterpiece of our times. This staggering artistic montage telling the time in film and TV clips will run in your thoughts.' (The Guardian)
'Christian Marclay, the wizardly visual artist, composer and appropriator has done it again, and then some.' (New York Times)
Marclay's work explores connections between sound, noise, photography, video, and film. The Clock has recently met with huge critical and popular acclaim following its debut at the White Cube Gallery and its inclusion in the British Art Show last year.
The work was awarded the Golden Lion award at the Venice Biennale this summer and Newsweek listed him as one of the ten most important artists working today.
