Clara Claus is a pluridisciplinary artist from France, she studied Spatial Design at Duperré (Paris) and holds a BFA from The Cooper Union (NY). Claus’ varied practices include drawing, painting, installation, video, and collaboration with musicians and other disciplines through the composition of graphic scores.
She is invested in the idea that visual arts and mark making are ways to explore and articulate the invisible. Through her multimedia practice, she explores different aspects of the real and its distorted froms such as memory, sentiment and imagination. She uses each medium as a refracted particle of the real, with the intention to reveal what is sometimes less obvious and tangible, and to built narratives through perceptions.
Clara Claus presented her work around the world in cities like Paris (France), New York Los Angeles (USA), or Kolkata (India), Barcelona (Spain) in the form of solo exhibitions and performances. She collaborated with musicians such as Bryce Dessner (The National), Sufjan Stevens or Joakim, and filmmakers such as Margarita Jimeno or Derrick Belcham.
