David De Beyter

Born 1985, Roubaix, France.
Lives and works in Tourcoing, France.
David De Beyter’s approach to photography is both conceptual and documentary. He explores the boundaries between reality and fiction and his work melts together different registers — the present, past, and future. His artistic work is mainly based on landscape practice; through installations he questions the various status of the image. There is an anthropological side to what De Beyter does. Although present in his work since the beginning, it flourished with the Big Bangers project. On this occasion, he opens up his artistic work to moving images and sculpture, thus refining his thought and artistic propositions in relation to the notion of obsolescence.
