Clara Verdier

My research investigates power and colonial privileges, Eurocentric legacy and its effect on the world of knowledge as well as the politics of world systems.

Clara Verdier is a French interdisciplinary artist living and working in Paris, France. Verdier produces work in a variety of media including film, video, photography, text, painting and drawing. Her work explores practices and issues related to postcolonialism, socio-political concerns, equality and justice.

Clara Verdier was born and raised in the suburbs of Paris, France. She honours and cherishes particularly her creole / kréyol heritage. Irrefutably, her kréyol legacy has a definite influence on her practice in many different aspects: historical, sociological, political and spiritual. She graduated from the Royal College of Art with a Master’s degree in Contemporary Art Practice with a specialisation in Moving Image.
