Lives in London (GB), born in Cambridge (GB), lives in West Flanders (BE).
With social projects and with work in different media including video, photography, sound, drawings, performance and installation, Craigie Horsfield rethinks prevailing attitudes regarding society and the individual. Horsfield uses the notion of 'slow time' to denote his vision of history as something not out of the past (i.e. standing apart from our experiences), but rather as the deepening of the present. For Horsfield the word 'relationship' in the first place means that 'being' is created between individuals, and secondly that 'being' lies contained in each meeting, each encounter, each conversation.
