David Claerbout  is one of the most innovative and acclaimed artists working in the realm of moving images today, his oeuvre exists at the intersection of photography, film and digital technology.Trained as a painter, he became more and more interested in time through investigations in the nature of photography and film. His works present profound and moving philosophical contemplations on our perception of time and reality, memory and experience, truth and fiction.Using pixel constellations, image sequences, light, speed, speech, music and ambient sound, installation environment and the technologies used to convey these, his strikingly sensual compositions elicit new modes of perceptual absorption, expectations, comprehension and memory. He has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions internationally, most recently including: MNAC, Barcelona, and Schaulager, Basel (2017); Städel Museum, Frankfurt (2016); KINDL, Berlin (2016);  Marabouparken Konsthall, Sundbybert, Sweden (2015); Nederlands Fotomuseum, Rotterdam (2014); Kunsthalle Mainz, Mainz, Germany (2013).
