Video Quartet

Video Quartet
Curated by Peter Richards; featuring artist: Christian Marclay

 

The Golden Thread Gallery is delighted to present Christian Marclay’s critically acclaimed Video Quartet (2001) on loan from the Tate, London.

“Video Quartet is a four-screen DVD projection synchronizing hundreds of Hollywood film excerpts that feature actors and musicians playing instruments or making sound. Compelling both visually and acoustically, the piece is “a mixture of laptop multimedia collage and more conventional acts of cinematic and musical arranging that shows Marclay at the peak of his powers…” Artforum

In 2003 ‘Video Quartet’ became the first work by Marclay to be acquired by the Tate, London. Purchased from funds provided by the Film and Video Special Acquisitions Fund 2003.

Further information about this work can be found on the Tate website.
