Christian Marclay: Bottled Water

1990

Bottled Water
THIS LIMITED EDITION IS SOLD OUT.

In the fall of 1989, Christian Marclay created Tape Fall, an installation for the exhibition “Strange Attractors: Signs of Chaos” at the New Museum. For this show, he used over 150 reels of tape prerecorded with the sound of dripping water. As a continuation of the installation, the artist created Bottled Water, a special multiple for the Museum. Marclay filled 150 bottles with tape from Tape Fall, silkscreened a text on the front of each bottle, and sealed each one with cork and sealing wax stamped with its edition number.
