Art Thursday: David Claerbout Curator’s Tour USF Contemporary Art Museum

August 21 – October 28, 2017
USF Contemporary Art Museum

Belgian artist David Claerbout (b. 1969, Kortrijk; lives in Antwerp and Berlin, Germany) has explored the conceptual framework of duration through use of film and digital photography throughout his career. His skilled manipulation of still and moving images appears to capture another dimension of existence, shifting between past and present. The element of sound is critical in many of his works, used as either a narrative device or a “guide” for the viewer to navigate the architectural space in the film. Claerbout’s oeuvre is characterized by a meticulous attention to production details, painstakingly created often over a period of years. The resultant works are immersive environments in which the viewer is invited to engage both philosophically and aesthetically.

Curated by Margaret Miller; organized by USFCAM.
