Duncan Marquiss (b.1979 Scotland) is a Glasgow based artist who works with film and video, drawing, writing and music.
Much of his work explores overlaps between the cultural and the biological. His recent documentary work Evolutionary Jerks & Gradualist Creeps (2016) considered analogies between evolutionary patterns within the fossil record and the cultural evolution of popular music. Marquiss graduated from the MFA at Glasgow School of Art in 2005 and undertook the LUX Associate Artist Programme, London in 2009. He was the recipient of the Margaret Tait Award 2015-16.
Recent exhibitions include 'Renderuin' at Glasgow International Festival 2016 and a solo exhibition 'Copying Errors' at Dundee Contemporary Arts. Recent screenings include 'Experimenta' at the BFI London Film Festival 2015 and 'Index' screening at Microscope Gallery, New York.
