Since meeting in 2010 Daniel & Clara have dedicated themselves to a shared life of creative exploration, working across moving image, photography, installation and correspondence art.
Their work explores the relationship between psychology and place, looking at how we imbue places with meaning, and how in turn landscape, weather and the environment impact our imagination and state of mind.
By weaving narratives of mysterious incidents in the British countryside, they create eerie and otherworldly experiences where the very nature of reality becomes questionable.
Their work has been exhibited at Big Screen Focal Point Gallery, Kettle’s Yard, Whitechapel Gallery, BFI, By Art Matters Hangzhou, Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin, Paris Grand Palais, HKW Berlin, Fabrica Gallery, Close-up Cinema, Alchemy Film & Moving Image Festival, Doclisboa, Museu de Arte Moderna Rio de Janeiro.
Films by Daniel & Clara are included in the BFI National Archive. Their films are distributed online by Kinoscope.
In 2019 they launched Moving Image Artists (MIA), an organisation dedicated to supporting and cultivating contemporary moving image art and experimental film. This includes an online publication and the Moving Image Salon, a regular gathering for artists to meet, share and discuss their work which takes place at Film and Video Umbrella, London.
In 2020 they were awarded the Slow Film Festival moving image commission. Throughout 2021 they are working on Landscape Imaginary, a new body of work plus research and development funded by an Arts Council England Project Grant.
