Clément Verger (b. 1988, FR) has studied visual arts and communication at the National Superior School of Arts, Olivier de Serres in Paris and was afterwards admitted for the Leonardo da Vinci European grant. He graduated with honours from a Master in Photographic Studies at the university of Westminster in 2011. His work questions the apparent wilderness of the landscapes that surround us. In his latest project Endeavour exhibited during We Can Stay Here While We Wait, Clément Verger isolates a specific example of the larger phenomenon that is the transportation and implantation of species across the world. The Eucalyptus tree and its introduction in Europe becomes a case study, a tool to analyse the complex patterns in man’s influence on its environment.
Clément Verger is one of the new artist in residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts where he will be developing his next project Ascension, as well as continuing his work with Le Bal, La Fabrique du regard and Ersilia with whom he as been creating workshops since 2013.
