Bruce Clarke

Bruce Clarke would like to see his work as stimulating reflection on the world and the representation that is made of it. Recognizing that art provides a privileged domain of expression in a complex world he situates himself outside of an overtly self-centered or over personalized form of contemporary art, suggesting that one should not be a bystander in the face of history, but that individual activity can attempt to play a role in the making of that history.His art deals with contemporary history, the writing and transmission of this history. Involved as an activist in the anti-apartheid struggle, the Artist has always tried to integrate political commitment in visual art research, placing his work in a current of critical figuration.
Born in 1959, in London. Studied Fine Arts, Leeds University, Great Britain. 

Visual artist and photographer now based in Paris, he has exhibited in France and abroad since 1989.
