Daniel & Clara
Daniel & Clara
Daniel & Clara, two humans one artist on a journey exploring dimensions real and imagined, the results of which consist of moving image, photography and performance.
In their current work they have been exploring the British landscape as a site for encounters with the mysterious, the eerie, the otherworldly and the unknown. As they say, “we seek to see with one eye open and one eye closed, sight turned simultaneously out towards the world and inward to the depths of the human experience.” In their work, images and sounds of the landscape become activators of narratives where past, present and the imagination intermingle.
Their work has been exhibited and screened internationally at galleries and film festivals including Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin, Kettle’s Yard, Whitechapel Gallery, BFI, Fabrica Gallery, Close-up Cinema, Alchemy Film & Moving Image Festival, Doclisboa, Microcinema Artist Moving Image, Museu de Arte Moderna Rio de Janeiro, Black Box Farnham, Film Mutations Zagreb.
In 2019 they launched Moving Image Artists (MIA), an organisation dedicated to supporting and cultivating contemporary moving image art and experimental film. This includes an online magazine, screenings and the Moving Image Salon, a monthly gathering for artists to meet, share and discuss their work. The Moving Image Salon takes place at Film and Video Umbrella, London.

Document and dream, fact and fiction exist as one in a visionary journey to Avebury stone circle in Wiltshire. The artists return to the site of an earlier experience and the location of an earlier film in order to look again.

A film of darkness interrupted by fleeting fragments of Super 8 film, evoking a series of mysterious landscapes and eerie encounters in the foggy countryside. Mist, sheep, blood rituals and a film crew dissolving into the scenery.
