Une rétrospective (édition anglaise).

Publié à l'occasion de la grande rétrospective de l'artiste au Centre Pompidou, cet ouvrage explore en profondeur l'œuvre ouverte et multimédia conséquente de Christian Marclay, dont l'écho et la popularité n'ont cessé de croître au fil du temps. Depuis ses premières performances dans les années 1970 jusqu'à son iconique Guitar Drag (2000) et ses plus récentes installations vidéo à grande échelle telles que All Together (2018) et Subtitled (2019), des assemblages de disques et de leurs pochettes, des photographies de tous formats, des instruments de musique modifiés, des vidéos, des gravures et peintures combinées, des objets et des partitions graphiques assurent le tissu conjonctif de ce corpus choral et résolument polymorphe en perpétuelle évolution – une pratique dans laquelle la dimension auditive de notre existence, littérale ou silencieusement évoquée, est constamment affirmée.
Conçue par Zak Group et abondamment illustrée, la publication rassemble de nouveaux essais des écrivains Polly Barton et Nathalie Quintane, des historiens de l'art Michel Gauthier et Marcella Lista, et de la spécialiste du design Catherine de Smet, qui offrent de nouvelles perspectives sur la pratique de l'artiste. Elle comprend également une conversation approfondie avec Christian Marclay par le commissaire de l'exposition, Jean-Pierre Criqui, une anthologie de textes d'écrivains et d'historiens de l'art de renommée internationale – Clément Chéroux, Dennis Cooper, Jean-Pierre Criqui, Wayne Koestenbaum et David Toop – ainsi qu'une chronologie exhaustive d'Annalisa Rimmaudo.

Publié à l'occasion de l'exposition rétrospective de Christian Marclay au Centre Pompidou, Paris, de novembre 2022 à février 2023.

Avec l'échantillonnage, le shuffling et le montage comme éléments centraux, la pratique de l'artiste suisse-américain Christian Marclay (né en 1955 à San Rafael, Californie, vit et travaille à New York), « plasticien de la musique », connu comme l'inventeur du turntablism, est ancrée dans l'univers du son depuis la fin des années 1970. Éminent artiste conceptuel, lauréat du Lion d'or de la Biennale de Venise pour son installation vidéo historique de 24 heures, The Clock (2010), il est également fasciné par tous les aspects de la musique populaire et de la musique d'avant-garde, du cinéma hollywoodien et du cinéma expérimental. S'inspirant de la vision Fluxus de l'art et de l'esprit Pop, et héritier de John Cage et d'Andy Warhol, Marclay explore toutes les possibilités des arts visuels et les relations entre les phénomènes visuels et sonores à travers le collage, l'assemblage, l'installation, la vidéo, la photographie, la peinture et la gravure. Également performeur, il a pris part à de nombreux projets musicaux, faisant du disque vinyle et de la platine vinyle ses instruments de prédilection.

A retrospective.

Published on the occasion of the artist's major retrospective at the Centre Pompidou, Paris, this volume explores in depth Christian Marclay's consequential open and multimedia work, whose echo and popularity have continued to grow over time. From his early performances in the 1970s to his iconic Guitar Drag (2000) and his most recent large-scale video installations such as All Together (2018) and Subtitled (2019), assemblages of records and their covers, photographs in all formats, altered musical instruments, videos, combined prints and paintings, objects, and graphic scores ensure the connective tissue of this choral and resolutely polymorphic body of work in perpetual evolution—a practice in which the auditory dimension of our existence, whether literal or silently evoked, is constantly asserted.

Designed by Zak Group, and extensively illustrated, the publication gathers together new essays by writers Polly Barton and Nathalie Quintane, art historians Michel Gauthier and Marcella Lista, and design specialist Catherine de Smet to bring new perspectives to the artist's practice. It also features a comprehensive conversation with Christian Marclay by the exhibition's curator Jean-Pierre Criqui, an anthology of texts from an international array of writers and art historians—Clément Chéroux, Dennis Cooper, Jean-Pierre Criqui, Wayne Koestenbaum, and David Toop—as well as an exhaustive chronology by Annalisa Rimmaudo.

Published on the occasion of Christian Marclay's retrospective exhibition at Centre Pompidou, Paris, from November 2022 to February 2023.

With sampling, shuffling, and montage taking center stage, the practice of Swiss-American artist Christian Marclay (born 1955 in San Rafael, California, lives and works in New York), known as the inventor of "turntablism," has been anchored in the universe of sound since the end of the 1970s. An eminent conceptual artist and recipient of the Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale for his landmark 24-hour video installation The Clock (2010), he is equally fascinated by all aspects of popular music and avant-garde music, Hollywood cinema, and experimental film. Drawing on the Fluxus vision of art and Pop spirit, and heir to John Cage and Andy Warhol, Marclay has been exploring all the possibilities of the visual arts and the relationships between visual and sonic phenomena through collage, assemblage, installation, video, photography, painting, and printmaking. Also a performer, he has taken part in numerous musical projects, making the vinyl record and the turntable his favorite instruments.
