Duncan Marquiss (b. 1979, Scotland) works with video, drawing and collage. Often using appropriated material, he draws links between disparate cultural reference points, re-imagining them in new narratives and contexts. In the video works Roggenwolf and The Clay Wall, Marquiss explores his interest in horror films, the biological origins of folk myths, and the threshold between self-awareness and reverie. He lives and work in London. Recent exhibitions and screenings include S1 Salon, S1 Artspace, Sheffield; Peter Klichmann Gallery, Zurich; Visible Cinema, Glasgow Film Festival; The Clay Wall, Dicksmith Gallery, London; Strange Weather, Neuer Berliner Kunstverein; and The Metal Bridge, Socha Dallas, Glasgow. Awards and residencies include 2008 LUX Associate Artists Programme; Scottish Arts Council residency, Cove Park, Scotland; ISIDEM Programme, Sicily; and Film and Video Award, Scottish Arts Council 2006.
