David Claerbout

Belgium, 1969. Lives in Antwerp and Berlin

Claerbout graduated from the Nationaal Hoger Instituut voor Schone Kunsten, Antwerp, in 1995 and then attended the Rijksacademie van Beeldende Kunst in Amsterdam. Initially trained as a painter, he became more and more interested in the still and the moving image. Nowadays, he works primarily with video and photography and often produces large-scale video installations. His work is marked by an interrogation of time as an artistic medium. He has developed a kind of 'photography in movement' or 'still movement' into which he introduces narrative elements. He draws on the conventions of film, photography, and digital media, challenging boundaries by combining traditional technologies in the production of his works.
