His works are exhibited at the Venice Art Biennale in the central Giardini pavilion.

Large-scale works in which the artist appropriates objects, images and sounds that he manipulates and mixes with each other to create his paintings.

His works exhibited at the Art Biennale represent the primordial sound, the cry, as in Edvard Munch.

His “Scream” are excerpts from American comics and Japanese manga.

Comic book characters, cut, recomposed, enlarged, printed and engraved on wood like so many new mask-faces.

Christian Marclay uses the wooden support of his paintings to intensify facial expressions.

This is how he uses knots in wood at the location of the eye, and veins serve to accentuate the dynamics of portraits.
