Christian Marclay at White Cube
28 Jan – 12 April
Tuesday – Saturday, 10am – 6pm and Sunday, 12 – 6pm
Address: White Cube, 144-152 Bermondsey Street, London SE1 3TQ
Each performance will be recorded live and then pressed as records on site by The Vinyl Factory Press, the world’s first mobile vinyl manufacturing press, which is housed in a shipping container in the gallery for the duration of the exhibition. Following its debut at White Cube, The Vinyl Factory Press will travel to other events and cultural institutions in the coming months.
Featuring a vintage hydraulic hand press that is manually operated, plus all the elements required to power the press and make a record, audiences are able to witness on site the unique process of producing vinyl records, from the initial recording of the performances, to cutting and pressing the records and printing the cover artwork.
Working alongside The Vinyl Factory will be Coriander Studio, who will print unique silk-screened record sleeves designed by Marclay. The limited edition vinyl will retail at £25.00 and be available at White Cube and at vfeditions.com.
