Christian Marclay - whose entire body of work makes the sound visible - has chosen from Andy Warhol's “Death & Disasters” series the most stunning version of the "Electric Chairs" by enlarging the detail of the "Silence" light box, which exists only in the first versions from 1964.

Christian Marclay – dont l’ensemble de l’œuvre rend visible le sonore – a choisi parmi la série des « Death & Disasters » d’Andy Warhol la version la plus sidérante des « Electric Chairs » en agrandissant le détail du caisson lumineux « Silence » qui n’existe que dans les premières versions de 1964.
