History

Scottish video and installation artist. Gordon was born in Glasgow and studied at the Glasgow School of Art from 1984-1988 and later at the Slade School of Fine Art, University College London, from 1988-1990. His work is often based on a disruption of perception; by making his audience aware of their own fugitive subjectivity, he questions how we give meaning to our experience of things. Gordon was the 1996 winner of the Turner Prize, and in 1997 he represented Britain at the Venice Biennale. He lives and work in Berlin.
