From Hollywood films to scientific footage to classical literature, Douglas Gordon takes the seemingly familiar and twists it. Having begun his career as a performance artist, Gordon has produced a diverse body of works, which has grown to include video, sound photographic objects, and texts, often plays with viewers’ perceptions, memories and expectations. In his well known work 24 Hour Psycho (1993), he slows down Alfred Hitchcock's legendary 1960 film Psycho into a full day's duration, drawing out the horror until it has ceased to be suspenseful. As Gordon himself has said, “I am the one who provides the board, the pieces and the dice, but you are the one who has to play.” Gordon won a Hugo Boss Prize in 1998.
