Discrete Channel with Noise : Algorithmic Painting (Detail) Discrete Channel with Noise : Algorithmic Painting (Detail)

Clare Strand is a British conceptual artist, working with and against the photographic medium. Over the past two decades she has worked with found imagery, kinetic machinery, web programmes, fairground attractions and most recently, large scale paintings. She rejects the subject-based qualities and the immediate demand of information, so often associated with the photographic image and instead, and without apology, adopts and welcomes a subtle, slow burn approach.
 

Strands work has been widely exhibited in venues such as The Museum Folkwang; The Center Pompidou; Tate Britain; Salzburg Museum of Modern Art and the Victoria and Albert Museum. Her work is held in the collections of MOMA; SFMoma; The V&A; The Center Pompidou; The British Council; McEvoy Collection; The Arts Council; The NY Public Library; The Uni Credit Bank; The Mead Museum and Cornell University. She has produced 3 publications, Clare Strand Monograph published by Stedil (2009), Skirts published by GOST (2014) and Girl Plays with Snake published by MACK (2017). She is represented by Parrotta Contemporary, Cologne/Bonn. Clare is also one half of the collaborative partnership MacDonaldStrand  and Head of the Intangiable for The Institute of Unnecessary Research For enquiries please contact Clare Strand Studio
