"A great deal of Marclay's output, possibly the majority of it, is visual or plastic in nature. And yet even this is as much about sound recording; perhaps more so, because it concerns the ubiquity of sound in culture. Marclay's work is about the socially inscribed "flip side" of sound; it is about the very fact that I could use the phrase "flip side" as unthinkingly as I just did, realizing only as I typed it that the term derives from records, and is thus infinitely apropos for use there."
"Wilhelm Sasnal's economy lies in the fact that he consistently allows his viewers to share in this unresolved ambivalence and the tragic, naive longing to grasp the uungraspable. An ambivalence that might be described as the basis of Sasnal's visual stock-taking of identity or, to repeat, as a kind of defect of the faculty of perception. Despite their easy "legibility", his pictures resist interpretation while still being of great significance in terms of historical mentality, subculture and opposition."
"It was strange that when I was younger I thought of my mother as older in the picture and when I returned to it, I realized that hers was the face of a young woman that I didn't recognize and hadn't seen before! It took my own aging to make me really appreciate and understand my mother as her younger self. I could see in the photograph my mother, myself, and someone I could never have known at that age."
