David Bart was born in 1974. He studied in Bordeaux’s renown Art School, from which he graduated with honors in 1999 (Master of Fine-Arts).
Through his visual and film research, David centers his practice on the exploration of the realms of reality, the subjectivity of perception and the idea of mankind’s fragility.
His visual and photographical works strive to explore the complementary relation between medias, creating hybrid forms, questioning all kinds of locations, -real and virtual, imaginary, unconscious places-… David Bart particularly uses the deterritorialization of objects and signs to re-contextualize them in either foreign (Fantasmapolis) or pending (Æther Nova and String Theory) spaces and temporalities. He aims at provoking a shock in the audience’s understanding, questioning our free subjective view on the world. With This is a gift, he calls for reflection on the permeability of the boundary between the physical world and virtual space.
