Christian Marclay — Ephemera


Mixed media

Christian Marclay

Past: October 8 → 15, 2011

Ephemera is the result of the long-term accumulation of eclectic and decorative musical notations, gleaned from here and there in various advertisements, illustrations, menus, candy wrappings etc. These ephemera have been assembled, and then photographed and reproduced in a series of 28 folios. From this ensemble of printed motifs, Christian Marclay has created a musical score named Ephemera, which is intended to be played by professional musicians.

For the exhibition of this work, mfc-michèle didier has planned a display that will render the work’s whole musical dimension.
