Set Design is at the heart of French Artist Clarisse d’Arcimoles’ (b. 1986) practice. Based in London she studied Set Design for Performance at Central Saint Martins followed by a Postgraduate course in photography, her work combines these two interests.
Working mostly around archives, the reconnection of the past and present reflects d’Arcimoles’ fascination with photography as a permanent recorder of memories combined with the impossibility of reversing time. From re-staging personal snapshots to anonymous photographic portraits and historical photography, Clarisse takes satisfaction living within the fiction she is creating.
Throughout the years, Clarisse d’Arcimoles’ work has been enthusiastically received with exhibitions and awards in the UK and internationally. Her last solo show Forgotten Tale took place at the Photographers’ Gallery in summer 2016. Selected exhibitions include I wish you all, Eleven Spitalfields (2017), Women Artists Woman collector, Marcel Joseph Projects (2014), Forget Nostalgia, Breese little (2013), Newspeak: British Art Now, Saatchi Gallery, London and Adelaide (2011).
Clarisse d’Arcimoles is one of the 35 photographers represented by The Photographer’s Gallery.
