Artists Index: Douglas Gordon

Douglas Gordon (b. 1966 Glasgow, Scotland. Lives and works in New York.) Through his work in video, photography, and sculpture, Gordon addresses and explores universal dualities: life and death, good and evil. He has exhibited extensively, including the Stedelijk Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, the DIA Center for the Arts in New York, the National Gallery, Edinburg, and was included in the SkulpturProjekte in Münster in 1997. Gordon was the 1996 recipient of the Turner Prize, in 1997 was awarded Premio 2000 at the Venice Biennial. In 2006 Gordon worked in collaboration with Philippe Parreno to produce a film about world-renowned French football player Zinedine Zidane, which watches Zidane's movement throughout an entire game, and captures Zidane in a multidimensional space leading the spectator to experience the sensations and movements of an athlete. He is represented by Gagosian, London.
