about Christian Marclay

Long before the Sleeveface meme hit the internet, another clever art with album covers had already been experimented. The pioneer was Christian Marclay, a visual artist and composer who works with sound, illustration, photography and video installation. Mark always loved to change the initial purpose and shape of the object, whether that is video, vinyl record or poster, so he could pull out the hidden meaning, or just emphasize the original one.

Born in California and grew up in Switzerland, Christian attended the Ecole Supérieure d’Art Visuel in Geneva and later continued his education at the Massachusetts College of Art and Cooper Union in New York. During his student days, he started exploring noise music, neo-dada movement, and visual art. Some of the artists that inspired him are Joseph Beuys and Yoko Ono, and his journey into the visual and audio art was conceptual and philosophical since the very beginning.
