Daniel Laufer’s art is a confluence of text-based works, drawings, video and performance. In making a film, for example, the artist places paintings on glass in front of the camera in order to transport the characters into a liminal space. His narrations challenge the conventional authorial voice, and time shifts and repetitions play on the trickiness of individual perception and memory. To complicate things even more, Laufer’s video art is often accompanied by a live performance, sometimes carried out by the artist himself. He won the 2010 Boskamp Foundation prize.
