Christian Marclay's work, which references pop culture, appropriation art and sampling, is an investigation into sound and visual media, and the relationship and limitations of them both. In 'Krrump Thup!' a follow up to his 2007 print 'Krak', Marclay uses fragments from colourful comic strips, isolating certain words and phrases that convey sound. Through these singled-out words and phrases, he emphasises how sound can be transmitted both aurally and visually. Like his film works, which collage many fragments together from pre-existing materials, these comic-strip works use a collage technique to create new meanings and to explore the role of language in relation to sound.
