Christian Marclay

Utterly compelling! Hard to tear myself away.
Hey! Are we really talking about…the telephone?

Watch this 30 second clip of Christian Marclay’s art video and you ‘ll be hooked (pun intended)!

Click here if unable to view the video.

Christian Marclay, 58, an acclaimed and highly trained artist, loves to combine popular culture with the deepest of human emotions.

The telephone in his video becomes the starring actor. The ring of the telephone creates the mood, foreboding and suspenseful. The hellos and goodbyes tell the story…the story we imagine.


Watch this to be enthralled with Marclay’s full (7 minute) art video, “Telephones.”
