Video Quartet

Christian Marclay

film installation


A 14-minute, four-screan video work consisting of edited fragments from Hollywood films. The visiual and aural relationships between the four screens are so brilliantly engaging and complex as to reveal new material and insights even after countless viewings.


Innitally an unrelated collision of clips and segments arrayed across four screens, Quartet quickly reveals a formal and conceptual logic and rigour of jaw-dropping dexterity and charm. Connections and references form and dissolve like waves of memory, each falling back to reveal something new and vital rising behind.
