Clément Verger (b. 1988, FR) has studied visual arts and communication at the National Superior School of Arts, Olivier de Serres in Paris and was afterwards admitted for the Leonardo da Vinci European grant. He graduated with honours from a Master in Photographic Studies at the university of Westminster in 2011. His work questions the apparent wilderness of the landscapes that surround us. In his latest project Endeavour, Clément Verger isolates a specific example of the larger phenomenon that is the transportation and implantation of species across the world. The Eucalyptus tree and its introduction in Europe becomes a case study, a tool to analyse the complex patterns in man’s influence on its environment.
Clément Verger was one of the artists in residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts during the 2017/2018 period. In 2018 he was one of the recipients of the Bourse de l'aide à la photographie documentaire from the CNAP. Starting from September 2018 he will be one of the new member at the Académie de France in Madrid, Casa de Velazquez.
