Douglas Gordon, ‘Untitled’, 2017, FROZEN PALMS GALLERY

Douglas Gordon created a two panel composition as an homage to Courbet’s painting L’Origine du Monde. Hailed as one of the most prominent artist of his generation to emerge from Britain, Gordon’s work spans across many different forms of media. Throughout his career he has utilized photography, text, sculpture, and perhaps most significantly film, with which he produced a series of video instiallations based on iconic films including Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, John Ford’s The Searchers, and Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver. Gordon’s work is meant to abstract what we think we know and understand, and through that abstraction creates a new experience for the human memory to process and approach what it has previously witnessed.

About Douglas Gordon

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.

Scottish, b. 1966, Glasgow, United Kingdom, based in Berlin, Germany
