喬治・克拉克 George Clark跨領域藝術Interdisciplinary
駐村成果展《種植者的藝術》(A Planter's Art)
George Clark was born in West Yorkshire, UK and studied Fine Art at Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design, London. He is an artist, writer and curator whose work bridges art and curatorial practice with particular focus on film, exploring the history of images and how they are governed by culture and technology as well as social and political conditions.
The works in the exhibition ‘A Planter's Art’, attempt to embrace mobility and temporality to describe the shifting terrain of history. In his short text, A Planter's Art, from which the exhibition has taken its title, the French philosopher Gilles Deleuze describes a way of working between two places, two temporalities suggesting a method of placing the camera that follows the ‘way of planting’. Not burying the camera on its feet, but rapidly planting it, just below the surface of the soil or terrain, and then carrying it elsewhere to plant it over again. ‘A Planter's Art’ is an attempt to embracing this method as a way to understand uprooted lives and ways to live and work between places and times, 'no taking root, just stabs.'
