Anouk de Clercq: Future Images

Anouk de Clercq: Future Images

“Emerging from a universe of primordial darkness, her images oscillate in the space between the formed and formless, creating and disintegrating in subtle worlds of emanating light.” —Richard Ashrowan

As a conjurer of imaginary, semi-abstract worlds that are uncannily rooted in our physical reality, Belgian artist Anouk de Clercq has forged a unique cinematic language that explores the unstable outer boundaries of human vision. Employing technologies such as computer animation, 3D scanning, and even an electron microscope, de Clercq’s visual universe feels both intimate and infinite, rich with philosophical reference points. This is a rare U.S. appearance for de Clercq, whose category-defying work has been presented at Tate Modern, Centre Pompidou, and many others. For her first show in Los Angeles, she will screen a selection of visually stunning, monochrome films that investigate our tenuous relationship to the spaces that surround us, and the role our subjectivity plays in their construction.
