In September, David Claerbout will open two solo exhibitions at Leopold-Hoesch Museum in Germany and Tel Aviv Museum of Art in Israel. Leopold-Hoesch Museum will honour Claerbout, the recipient of the Peill Foundation Award 2010, with an exhibition and publication; The Helena Rubinstein Pavilion for Contemporary Art at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art will present the acclaimed exhibition ‘the time that remains’, previously on view at Parasol unit in London. ‘the time that remains’ features work that spans the past two decades of Claerbout’s practice including the film ‘Bordeaux Piece’ (2004), nearly fourteen hours in duration; ‘Sunrise’ (2009); ‘The Quiet Shore’ (2011); and the new work, ‘Breathing Bird’ (2012) which was shown at the Parasol unit for the first time. In both exhibitions, Claerbout presents a compelling body of work that challenges the viewer’s understanding of time and the narrative process.
