Christian Marclay Silent/Listen 2005, music box, Norton Christmas Art Edition. Dimensions: 4" x 5" x 2-3/4 (10 x 13 x 7 cm). Rare in mint unopened condition! Item has never been removed from original packaging. The first two photos are the actual item you will receive.
It is one of the nicest I've seen, with tight wood grain and dark rich even contrast in the embossed'SILENT' lettering. Complete as issued with card. You won't find a finer example of this artwork. The piece is in the permanent collection of several American museums.
Marclay received the Golden Lion award for best artist at the 54th Venice Biennale for his 24-hour virtuosic video piece, "The Clock, " which was first shown at White Cube in London in 2010. Since then the demand has grown for Marclays rare smaller works including this limited edition music box. The cultural implications of music and sound are central to Christian Marclay's sculptures, installations, videos, and performances. For this project, Marclay has composed "Tinsel" - a seamless melodic loop without beginning or end that incorporates the gradual slowing of the unwinding mechanism - to play with our expectations of the music box. The artwork, a pine box branded with the word "SILENT" on the cover which opens to reveal the anagram "LISTEN", and a music box mechanism which plays a third anagram, Tinsel is a sly triple word play multiple from the 2005 Peter Norton Family Christmas Project.
