24 Hour Psycho

Douglas Gordon

31 October – 1 November 2008

Douglas Gordon’s 24 hour Psycho was presented at VIVID over 24 hours, allowing visitors to experience this seminal video work in its entirety.

As its title suggests, 24 Hour Psycho is a slowed down version of Alfred Hitchcock’s classic 1960 film ‘Psycho’, where a single, continuous viewing lasts exactly twenty-four hours. Outstanding works by contemporary artists punctuated the Pioneers programme and this rarely seen, pioneering work legendary status in its capacity to fuse art and cinema.

Douglas Gordon was born 1966 in Glasgow. He currently lives and works in Glasgow and New York. Gordon has exhibited widely with solo shows at Yvon Lambert, Paris; Gagosian, New York; Pompidou Centre, Paris; and San Francisco Museum of Art.
