Lecture Artefact

Artist talk: Anouk De Clercq

Anouk De Clercq (°1971, BE) explores in her practice the potential of audiovisual language to create possible worlds. Fascinated by what lies behind ‘reality’ or in between the visible and the imaginary, her work takes the shape of film, video and text. Her recent work is based on the utopian idea of ‘radical empathy’.

In this artist talk, De Clercq provides an insight into her practice and the work included in the exhibition Wired for Empathy: The video installation One is ‘a film, a performance, a 21st century protest song, a call to action, a pledge, a commitment, a solemn undertaking, a summoning of consciousness, an instruction, a stand against mindlessness and distraction, an art of limits, an active silence, a difficult love. And an invitation. To drink in the vibrancy of life at all scales. To embrace complexity and attend to our world with a befitting vibrancy of feeling.’
