Anouk De Clercq

Anouk De Clercq (°1971) studied piano at the Academy of Music in Ghent and film at the Sint-Lukas Brussels University College of Art and Design. Her works explore the audiovisual potential of computer language to create possible worlds, many of which have a strongly architectonic character.

Her work has been shown in Tate Modern, Whitechapel Art Gallery, Centre Pompidou, Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, MAXXI, International Film Festival Rotterdam, Ars Electronica, Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève, among others.
