The first artist to win the Turner Prize with a video work in 1996, Douglas Gordon has become an icon for his considered use of video, film and installation. For the 19th Biennale, Gordon presents his work Phantom (2011) at the MCA. In this special address, Gordon will reflect upon his aesthetic influences and the conceptual import of his chosen mediums.
