about this work

Claerbout's work deals with the transient nature of time and place on a specific moment and the incapability of any form of visual reproduction to completely capture 'reality' as it comes or exists. Or to speak with the artist's own words: 'I don't know if recording reality and making your own reality is really any different". 

Berlin Bike (2012) was published by Parasol Unit, London on the occasion of the solo exhibition The time that remains by David Claerbout in 2012.

about David Claerbout

°1969, Courtrai (BE) - lives and works in Antwerp (BE) and Berlin (DE)

As one of the most innovative and acclaimed artists of his generation working with moving image, David Claerbout has created a striking body of works within which the media of film and photography appear to co-exist. Claerbout's works often depict some everyday activity or event that seems to be the subject of the work, but as time passes we as viewers face a dilemma in how to decipher the artist’s intention. The works not only alter our established understanding of time and the narrative process but also our notions of reality, illusion, and the relationship between them.

David Claerbout has had numerous solo exhibitions, including SFMOMA, San Francisco; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; the MIT List Visual Arts Center, Massachusetts; and the Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich. His work has been shown in several major group exhibitions, including shows at Louisiana, Humblebaek; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; MCA, Chicago; and Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin.

Claerbout's work is also present in many important public collections, such as Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Boijmans van Beuningen Museum, Rotterdam.
