David Claerbout in Meditation in Peace. Meditation in Pieces

Video installation artist David Claerbout (b. 1969) was born in Kortfijk, Belgium, and graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp in Belgium, and Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Claerbout received a training in painting at first, and is later known for his works mixing photography, video, sound and digital technologies. Through manipulating and experimenting with motion and stillness, time and speed, as well as sound, the artist destabilizes conventional boundaries between visual media, and imbues his video images with multilayered temporalities. Claerbout was featured in the 2004 Taipei Biennial. This solo exhibition showcases a selection from his large-scale video works of 1996, which are to be accompanied by a series of sketch drawings, to construct a unique viewing experience in the high-ceiling gallery.
