David Claerbout has distinguished himself in recent years with video works that are as spectacular as they are multi-layered. The artist's multimedia oeuvre – located, so to speak, between the media – aims at a fundamental reflection on visual genres. In his concentrated output, time becomes the decisive dimension of perception. The artist plays ingeniously with the forms of temporality in images, their possible elongations and condensations between moment and duration.

Claerbout's new film, Wildfire (Meditation on Fire), will premier at Kunst Museum Winterthur on September 11 and Musea Brugge on September 30, 2020.
