Artist biography

Douglas Gordon is a contemporary Scottish artist known for his ability to disrupt preconceived ideas about reality. Through his performances, installations, photography, and video art, Gordon readjusts scenes, tinkers with time, and appropriates cultural sources. His video projection 24 Hour Psycho (1993) decelerates the Hitchcock classic, prolonging its viewing for a day. For his sound installation, Something Between My Mouth and Your Ear (1994), Gordon played 30 songs that were popular during the months before his birth in a blue room. The artist has said of his practice that “the drive for me has always been to just push it a little bit more.” Born on September 20, 1966 in Glasgow, Gordon won the Turner Prize in 1996, six years after he studied at the Slade School of Art in London. A graduate of the Glasgow School of Art, the multimedia artist represented Britain in Venice Biennale in 1997. The following year he was awarded the Hugo Boss Prize. Gordon currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
