Born in Liege in 1939, Jacques Charlier is a visual artist whom process is defined by his critical approach of the art world and the current clichés regarding the avant-garde. Owing to his constant quest for appropriate connections between ideas and media, he favours an interdisciplinary way of working. He picks successively painting, photography, video, music, writing, sculpture, installation, comics or advertisement.
For years, his artistic chronicles, columns and critical texts are published and have created a coherent whole underlining and caricaturing the qualities, the contradictions and the declines of the dominant artistic movements at an international scale.
From Biennale of Venice 2009, he's been on the road for contemporary art events with Ute Willaert to make punchy video reports with ClartVision.
