Artist Name: Douglas Gordon
Das Giftraum is extremely proud to present Douglas Gordon's first exhibition in Neukölln. Gordon's practice encompasses video and film, installation, sculpture, photography and text. Through his work, Gordon investigates human conditions like memory and the passage of time, as well as universal dualities such as life & death, good & evil, right & wrong.
Born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1966, Gordon currently lives and works in Berlin, Glasgow and Paris and teaches film at the Städelschule in Frankfurt am Main. He is represented internationally by Gagosian Gallery, Until then in Paris, Galerie Eva Presenhuber in Zürich and Dvir Gallery in Tel Aviv. In 1996 he won the Turner Prize, the Premio 2000 prize for best young artist at the 1997 Biennale and the 1998 Hugo Boss Prize administered by the Guggenheim in New York, and has continued to win many accolades since. In 2006 Gordon made a film about Zinedine Zidane, 'Zidane, un portrait du 21e siecle', with Philippe Parreno which was scored by Mogwai.
In this exhibition he presents two works: "Jesus Is Not Enough" and "20 Seconds of 'Pretty much every film and video work from about 1992 until now'".
