Artist Christian Marclay, known for his iconic film works Video Quartet and The Clock, and writer Geoff Dyer discuss their work and the changing shape of culture today.
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.
