Candice Breitz

Candice Breitz´s works is moving primarily between photography and video installation, her work has tended to focus on the language of representation as it intersects with questions of identity and subjectivity. Earlier photographs explore the syntax and grammar of the body as it learns to see and to be seen, to speak and to be spoken. Later photographic and video works tackle the plight of individual expression as it is filtered through consumer experience. Breitz´s works explicitly investigates the contours of desire that map urban lives -shifting constantly between presence and absence, memory and nostalgia, celebrity and anonymity, familiarity and alienation."
