Duncan Campbell

About this exhibition

WIELS presents the first major exhibition in Belgium by Duncan Campbell (b. 1972). Irish-born, Glasgow-based artist Campbell is best known for his documentary films. He was the recipient of the 2014 Turner Prize, to which he contributed with his seminal film It for Others, originally made for the Scottish Pavilion at Venice Biennial (2013), and which is a central work of this exhibition.

Campbell uses archival material as a tool to research subjects, biographies and histories and to reflect upon the “truth” or factual evidence of information. By mixing archival footage and new material, he questions and challenges the documentary form.
