"Organised in close collaboration with the artist, for the first time in Italy the exhibition offers an important overview of Claerbout’s video-installations. His works explore that status of the image in its double nature of image-time and image-movement."

D

avid Claerbout is one of the most innovative artists in the world to work with moving images. In recent years, his work has been the object of a series of important personal shows (Centre Pompidou, Paris, 2007; De Pont Museum for Contemporary Art, Netherlands, 2009; Wiells, Brussels; San Francisco Museum of Art, 2011; Secession, Vienna; Parasol unit foundation for contemporary Art, London, 2012) and international exhibitions focusing on the interest shown by contemporary artists in the dimension of time in cinema and video.

 

The Mart’s aim is to introduce the Italian public to a form of research that makes it possible to understand how the use of the digital media in a manner that is not simply spectacular has opened new perceptive, aesthetic and conceptual horizons for the contemporary vision.
