In the first of a 2-part interview series, Gordon invited Berlin Art Link into his studio for a glimpse at his process: a narrative unfolded that revealed his affinity for a wide variety of found objects and his remarkable ability to mobilize them in the pursuit of his work. With Gordon, nothing is wasted and nothing is without purpose: a collection of seven footballs and an assortment of weaponry all have a place in the process and outcome of his practice. Scottish, Berlin-based artist Douglas Gordon gained critical acclaim in the art world with his 1996 Turner Prize win and his piece '24 Hour Psycho', a rear-projected installation of Hitchcock's film 'Psycho' slowed down to last an entire day. Since then, he's created an impressive collection of works in photography, video, installation and public space, largely dealing with issues of collective memory and prompting novel reactions to the familiar.
