The curator's voice: Tanya Barson talks abour the exhibition "Christian Marclay. Compositions"

Category
Exhibitions / Other

The exhibition examines Marclay’s interest in composition, understood as the ordering of sounds in time and space. In his work, however, he undermines our customary relation to the audible, subverting our cultural understanding of sound as well as our phenomenological perception – or sensory experience – of it. More frequently, the exhibition foregrounds silence and the visitor sees rather than hears sound, challenging us to think of sound visually and conceptually'.
