Claude Closky's deadpan works in multiple media highlight the inherent absurdities in contemporary culture. After spending the 1980s working in painting, he moved to photography, drawing, publishing and eventually the web. In each of these media, his work breaks, in often subtle ways, the visual and linguistic conventions that allow them to retain their tenuous grasp of meaning and coherence.
Closky has exhibited widely, and was awarded the 2005 Prix Marcel Duchamp. He lives and works in Paris.
