Part of the 2018 Festival of Creative Learning
To coincide with his solo exhibition at Talbot Rice Gallery, David Claerbout, one of the most acclaimed and innovative artists working in the realm of moving-images today, will give an artist talk at Edinburgh College of Art, as part of the 2018 Festival of Creative Learning.
His oeuvre exists at the intersection of photography, film and digital animation and poses questions about the passage of time and how images construct realities. Approaching the increasingly sophisticated virtual worlds we now confront, Claerbout highlights the profound changes taking place in our culture, which sees capitalism and cutting-edge technologies collude to remake visual perception. Characterised by restraint, his work constitutes a careful and meditative space from which to engage with these issues and contemplate the nature of what we see.
