Christian Marclay: Surround Sounds

Exhibition Website

Mar 21 2019 - Sep 1 2019

The Nasher Museum presents Christian Marclay: Surround Sounds, a large-scale, synchronized silent video installation that consists of animated onomatopoeias projected onto four walls of a darkened room. Marclay drew from a collection of comic books, cutting out sound effects and animating them in a choreography that suggests the acoustic properties of each word. “Whizz” and “zoom” speed across the walls; “beep” blinks persistently, while “thump” falls rhythmically onto the floor.
