This event has ended.

Presented for the first time in North America, the large-scale video installation Surround Sounds (2014-15) consists of animated onomatopoeias projected onto four walls of a darkened room. To make the work, Marclay drew from a collection of comic books, cutting out sound effects and animating them in a choreography that suggests the acoustic properties of each word. “Whizzes” and “zooms” flash across the walls and “beeps” blink persistently, while “thumps” seem to crash and clunk on the floor. Merging the aural with the visual, this silent work unfolds like a musical composition, providing an immersive perceptual experience.
