Over the past 35 years, Christian Marclay has explored the fusion of fine art and audio cultures, transforming sounds and music into a visible, physical form through performance, collage, sculpture, installation, photography and video.Marclay began his exploration into sound and art through performances with turntables in 1979, while he was still a student. Early work includes a series of ‘Recycled Records’ (1980-86), fragmented and reassembled vinyl records that became hybrid objects that could be played, replete with abrupt leaps in tone and sound. For his ‘Body Mix’ series (1991-92), he stitched together album covers into works to create strange phantasms of music and culture – such as Deutsche Grammaphon conductors with the slender legs of Tina Turner – that bring to mind Surrealist ‘Exquisite Corpses’. This transformation of musical instruments or objects to create visual puns is an essential component of Marclay’s work. (1999), for instance, features an accordion with its bellows elongated to more than seven metres. This playfulness with sound and image is also a feature of his ‘Snapshots’, an ongoing, informal series of photographs that depict elements of sound and onomatopoeia that the artist discovers in everyday situations.

Over the last decade, Marclay has created ambitious work in a variety of media. The video (2000) features a Fender Stratocaster being dragged behind a pick-up truck along rough country roads in Texas. While on one level the work is an expression of Marclay’s interest in creating a new sound, it is also a nod to the guitar-destroying antics of rock stars as well as a reference to the murder of James Byrd Jr., an African-American man dragged to his death behind a pick-up truck. (2002), a four-screen projection featuring hundreds of clips from old Hollywood films, with actors and musicians making sound or playing instruments, represents a high point of his vision, an elaborate audio-visual collage that evokes pop culture, appropriation art and sampling. Marclay used a similar technique with (2007), a four-screen video installation that surrounds the viewer with clips of actors handling and discharging guns directly at the viewer. The work is at once a musical composition, with the gunfire creating a powerfully rhythmic soundtrack, and an incisive re-imagining of one of cinema’s most common tropes. In 2010, he created from thousands of edited fragments, from a vast range of films to create a 24-hour single-channel video installation. While examines how time, plot and duration are depicted in cinema, the video is also a working timepiece that is synchronised to the local time zone. At any moment, the viewer can look at the work and use it to tell the time. Yet the audience watching experiences a vast range of narratives, settings and moods within the space of a few minutes, making time unravel in countless directions at once. With his six animation videos (2016), the artist explores the limits and concept of 'street photography'. Each animation is created by editing thousands of images taken during his daily walks through London, where Marclay shot commonly discarded objects found in the pavement (cigarette butts, bottle caps, chewing gums, cotton buds, plastic lids and straws). Countless photographs are layered in bombastic sequence, tricking the audience to perceive a conjured sense of motion: burnt cigarettes growing back and being consumed; colourful bottle caps flash and blend; hairy cotton buds wiggle; blobs of chewing gum divide and multiply like cells; and plastic straws rotate like clockwork.

Christian Marclay was born in California in 1955, raised in Switzerland and now lives in London. He has exhibited widely, including recent solo exhibitions at Sapporo Art Museum, Japan (2017), White Cube, London (2017 and 2015), Rencontres Internationales de la Photographie, Arles (2016), Aargauer Kunsthaus, Aarau (2015), Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2010), Barbican, London (2005), Fredericianum, Kassel (2003), Walker Art Centre, Minneapolis (2004), Tate Modern, London (2004), The Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami (2002), San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (2002).

Thank you, Natalie. Right on the money–and what I am working on, changing old beliefs that are not working to ones that will.

Emily says

I don’t love my ex anymore, but I still remember those nasty things he did to me. It makes me feel scared to open up and love. It has been one and a half years and I can’t meet someone to go into a relationship even I have tried to date different people.

I want to get rid of the past and embrace a new relationship, but the past just comes back to haunt me sometimes. I do want to be in a happy relationship. How can I really forget the past?

I am having the same issue, only difference I haven’t even tried dating again. Looking for the same answer…

Question — I’m starting to think I’m the “common denominator” to a degree but I’m not sure how to fix my situation. I’ve been with unavailable men and I stopped doing that; I have not had a real, committed relationship in about 5 years. I was with a EU three years ago and didn’t see the flags that he was EU — it truly broke my heart. I finally stopped seeing him and have dated other men but I have extreme anxiety — it seems like the only two kinds of men I meet are those who are unavailable in some way or those who are ready to get serious without even knowing me yet (needy, pressuring me, etc.). I think a huge part of it is just not meeting the right guy but I’m starting to think having repeated disappointments from dating and either letting someone down or being let down has left me permanently damaged. I also very rarely feel any sort of connection or spark with a man and I’d rather stay single than be with someone who I’m not really attracted to emotionally. I truly do want a relationship, just the right one. I’m heading to 50 and have been divorced now for 10.5 years — I left because I could not relate to my husband/had different shared values and left thinking I’d find that with someone else. Here I am alone for another holiday and unsure how to fix this situation….

In 1967, Pete Seeger composed a protest song that said: “We’re waist deep in the Big Muddy, and the big fool says to push on.” It was a poke at President Lyndon Johnson in an allegory about Vietnam. That war is long past. But Johnson led us into another, more literal Big Muddy that we have yet...

"We can't emphasize enough how important it is for rugby in Canada, not just Rugby Canada," Powers said. "The funding hit and the repetitional hit would be significant—not that we can't overcome it —but we want to get through it and be there."

​Powers and current Rugby Canada CEO Allen Vansenare both in San Francisco for the tournament and saw the Canadian men's and women's teams fall out of title contention on Friday.

"This weekend, Canadians maybe aren't as happy with the results that have come forward, and our players certainly aren't," Powers said. "[But] there's lots of positive, exciting things happening in Canadian rugby. Soon the results will catch up."

Recap

Vansenpoints to developmental academies in Toronto and Langford, B.C., as important parts of the national teams' future, along with the fact that the men's team has receivedsome funding as ofApril. That's a major boost for a program that lost funding from Own The Podium after failingto qualify for the Rio 2016 Olympics.

"Performance, in certain terms, it's not where we want to be," Vansen said. "This tournament is a great example, but certainly we'll continue to look for that funding as we go forward."

Beyond the results on the pitch, Vansen and Powers emphasize the impact of the World Cup on Canadian rugby as a whole.

"This is a really, really critical tournament," Vansen said. "It's huge for our sport, great for bringing more profile and really good on their pathway to the Olympic Games in 2020 [in Tokyo.]"

The last 12 months have been a lot to digestfor Canadian rugby fans. In addition to the men's 15s ongoing attempt to reach the 2019 World Cup, thewomen's sevens team missed out on a World Rugby Sevens Series' overall podium finishfor the first time whilethe men showed flashes of brilliance amidst an inconsistent campaign.

Powers sees the women's internal transition as necessary for the team's evolution. "I think 'in transition' means that you're sometimes going to have bumps on the road, that you're not going to dominate as you once did as new players get their feet," he said.

"You don't stay on top forever without transitioning."
