Christian Marclay’s works are made from objects, images, and sounds that already exist, which he appropriates and manipulates. His explorations into the relationship between sound and image led him to apply sampling techniques to Hollywood movies. He created montages of clips to form new narratives and multiple-screen projections. “I’ve always used found objects, images and sounds, and collaged them together, and tried to create something new and different with what was available. To be totally original and start from scratch always seemed futile. I was more interested in taking something that existed and was part of my surroundings, to cut it up, twist it, turn it into something different; appropriating it and making it mine through manipulations and juxtapositions”.
