DESCRIPTION

Co-Director of the Serpentine Gallery, Hans Ulrich Obrist continues his on-going Conversation Project (1996- ) with artist and writer Peter Clarke.

Peter Clarke

One of the most accomplished and versatile visual South African artists, Peter Clarke was born in 1929. In his early twenties he declared that he would make his living as an artist, which was a highly unusual ambition for a young black South African at the time. Over the last sixty years, Clarke has reflected on his country's social and political history and is often referred to as the ‘quiet chronicler'. His work constitutes a subtle critique of apartheid and its social consequences as well as more recently, aspects of the ‘new' South Africa.
