This publication brings together the source material that has informed Marclay’s visual practice over the past few years. It gathers nearly 600 black & white Xeroxes of found image collages compiled with the help of graphic designer Laurent Benner.
“Maybe it’s because I’m not a very good draftsman, collage feels like a more natural approach to sketching and developing ideas. I cut and paste and use my photocopier as a quick way to experiment and develop ideas. My work is all about finding, sampling, appropriating images and sounds, and transforming them. The found image is usually what triggers a thought process—formulating ideas or simply reaffirming latent thoughts. It’s a way to instantly mediate an image and get a little distance from it. Accidents are also often revealing. Like the camera, or any video editing software, the photocopier is just another tool.”
