David Claerbout. the time that remains
31 May – 10 August 2012
Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art will preview a solo exhibition dedicated to the filmic works of the Belgian artist David Claerbout. The exhibition features works spanning Claerbout's practice from 2000 to the present. The time that remains will be the artist's first solo exhibition in a London public gallery. Claerbout situates his striking work between the complex worlds of digital photography and film, investigating this intermediate area in concise and thought-provoking installations. Claerbout's films often depict everyday activities or events, which once digitally manipulated negate the linear passage of time. His work questions the viewer's conventional ideas of time and narrative processes.
Born in 1969, David Claerbout is one of the most internationally acclaimed video artists of his generation. He currently lives and works in Antwerp and Berlin.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a comprehensive publication, co-produced with WIELS, Brussels, distributed by Ludion.
