Andre Goldberg

André Goldberg (Ixelles, 1963) graduated from the School of Photography of the City of Brussels (1988). Publication of two photographic works published by la lettre volée (Portraits-fétiches, 1994, Le Passage du Témoin, 1995), then moved towards a more plastic photography (Urban vanities, Photograms , Précis of everyday life… ”), then towards video art and cinema. First experimental documentary film in super8 with the Belgian painter Paul Trajman (“comme un torrent…”, 1997), followed by two other films on art, “On the inexistence of time” with Jean-François Octave, 1998 and “ The Plastic Syndrome ”, with Pascal Bernier, 2001. Directs fictional short films (of the absence, 2007 and Mon Ange, 2014). Ends, in 2020, an experimental short film “Le Cantique des Cantiques”. His video installations draw on the codes of baroque painting (vanity, still life, portrait), with an approach developed essentially around questions on death, mourning, the past, absence, and the fragile traces of our presence in this world, questioning the state of the human condition. His works are regularly exhibited in Belgium and abroad. He also teaches videography in several schools and academies in Belgium.
