Peter Clough uses video, photography, sculpture and projection to create hybrid spaces that collapse opposing elements into a singular image. In still life photographs, Clough arranges simple sculptures on a table and lights the scene with digital projection. The resulting image is a hybrid of real and digital spaces, where corporeal forms blend with projected light. In some cases, Clough uses images of his own body to question the boundaries between inside and outside, subject and object. Scribble drawings are indexes of the human hand and collide with the hard geometry of cubes and surfaces. By using projected photographs as the light source for subsequent photographs, Clough doubles the act of photography, allowing two disparate images to coexist.

Clough has presented work in New York at MoMA PS1, Microscope Gallery, Southfirst Gallery, Leroy Nieman Gallery, SPRING/BREAK Art Fair, the Center for Performance Research, and Dixon Place Theater, in L.A. at Human Resources, in Nashville at Open Lot, in Berlin at Peres Projects and Space/Time at FLUTGRABEN e.V., in Seoul at Konkuk University and The House of Collections, in Antwerp at the Monty, in Ghent at Off/off Cinema and in Oslo at Kunstnernes Hus and Fotogalleriet. Clough’s work has been featured in the New York Times and Time Out magazine.
