June 2016 - July 2016
Born 1986 in Heidelberg/Germany.
Florian Clewe lives in Berlin/Germany and works as a visual artist at the interface of photography, painting and video. In his artistic practice, he moves through different fields and surfaces of knowledge and culture, reaching for possibilities of perception of the respective relations and differences between living, technical, artistic and scientific objects. Thereby, he questions the tensions that arise from the migration of the analysed arrangement of objects and images, practices and problems in the production of artistic forms and self-designs.
From 2008 to 2014, Florian Clewe studied film/video and visual arts at Merz Akademie in Stuttgart/Germany as well as the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Stuttgart. Within the framework of the research project ¡remediate! he worked as artistic and scientific assistant and lecturer.
His recent solo exhibition Nematic Twist was shown at Württembergischer Kunstverein / Querungen in 2015. Exhibition participations and screenings at, amongst others, Württembergischer Kunstverein, Stuttgart; Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Karlsruhe/Germany; LOTTE, Stuttgart; Alte Feuerwache Mannheim, Germany; Stuttgarter Filmwinter and Duisburger Filmwoche.
