David Horvitz

°1982, Los Angeles (US) – lives and works in Los Angeles (US)

David Horvitz works in the realm between the virtual and the physical, being able to translate the functioning of one sphere to the other. It is very difficult to explain what Horvitz does exactly, and what makes him such an interesting artist. He often jokes how his wife and friends think he is lazy, while actually he is constantly working. You could say that through his work, Horvitz creates a caption for the world rather than a new image for it. Through various conceptual strategies he reflects in a poetic, visual way of how we occupy a place in the world – be it digitally or ‘in real life’.

David Horvitz uses different media and distribution methods to spread his ideas: from photography and performance, to books, conceptual websites, online interventions and ‘mail art’. In many of his work, the artist plays with the boundaries of the artwork, with how we receive and read it, and how we ultimately understand it.
