From the enclosed information card. Christian Marclay's remarkable body of work exploring the space between what we hear and what we see has earned him acclaim both as a visual artist and as a musician in the United States and Europe. His concern with how sound is experienced, visualized, and translated into other forms leads him to work in a broad range of media. These slip mats are a beautiful distillation of his interdisciplinary approach, as they are made for DJs turntables - and so evoke the sounds associated with scratching and sampling - but they are clearly an artist's edition featuring the' hand' of the artist.
The mats also reference Marclay's decades-long career as a DJ and experimental musician, and his use of the turntable - and other stereo components - as expressive tools. Christian Marclay was born in San Rafael, California, and raised in Geneva, Switzerland.
