Christian Marclay‘s Fire & Water was conducted in 2012 in Beppu, Japan–a city known as the “Nine Hells” for its intense volcanic and seismic activity. Along the length of the pier jutting out into Beppu’s harbor, Marclay installed 100 banners to which 100 differently tuned bells were attached. Marclay’s project, surveyed in this volume in images and on an audio CD, offers a new perception of the city.

Christian Marclay has exhibited widely, including solo exhibitions at White Cube, London (2015), Whitney Museum of American Art (2010), Barbican, London (2005), Fredericianum, Kassel (2003), Walker Art Centre, Minneapolis (2004), Tate Modern, London (2004), San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (2002), and Kunsthaus Zurich, Zurich (1997).

He was awarded the Golden Lion at the 2011 Biennale di Venezia for, The Clock.

This ArtBook CD is an innovative work made of sound and pictures.
