PARIS - CENTRE POMPIDOU - DAVID CLAERBOUT
Until 7 January 2008
This Fall, David Claerbout (°1969, Kortrijk) has been invited by the Centre Pompidou in Paris to present his work. In his videographic production, Claerbout blurs the line between the still and the moving image, digitally manipulating analogue images to create works that invite a reconsideration both of the image and of our perceptions of space and time. Five works are presented in the exhibition space: The Stack (2002), Bordeaux Piece (2004), and Shadow Piece (2005), together with two new works, Sections of A Happy Moment and Long Goodbye (both 2007). Filmed in architectural settings representative of modern culture and the contemporary urban context, they explore the passage of time and the unfolding of space.
The exhibition, curated by Christine Van Assche, will travel to Cambridge (Mass), MIT List Visual Arts Center (06/02 > 06/04/2008), St Gallen, Kunstmuseum St Gallen (24/05 > 24/08/2008), Vancouver, The University of British Columbia (October > December 2008), Tilburg, De Pont (2009) and Tokyo, Metropolitan Museum of Photography (2009).
