Douglas Gordon est un artiste contemporain écossais. Il vit et travaille à Glasgow (Écosse) où il est né en 1966. Connu surtout comme un artiste vidéo, Douglas Gordon utilise des formes variées d’expression: projections vidéos, photographies, installations et textes muraux.
“Il est sans doute l’un des artistes qui rejette le plus vigoureusement la notion de style personnel. Il travaille sur l’appropriation d’images qu’il détourne, met en scène dans un contexte différent.” Dans cette optique les expositions deviennent l’élément essentiel de l’expression de l’artiste.
Douglas Gordon est lauréat de nombreux prix internationaux.
