Candice Beritz

Born in Johannesbourg, South Africa, in 1972. Lives and works in Berlin, Germany.

Exhibiting internationally since the mid-1990s, Candice Breitz has produced a substantial body of installation videos that examine stereotypes and visual conventions in film and popular culture. Her heavily edited videos often incorporate found-film segments. Clipping and reordering them, she produces new dialogue situations that speak of gender-based social and cultural stereotypes. She has participated in many major exhibitions including the Johannesburg, São Paulo, Istanbul, Kwangju, Taipei and Venice Biennales. She has had solo exhibitions at De Appel Foundation, Amsterdam (2001); Moderna Museet, Stockholm (2004); Modern Art Oxford (2003); Castello di Rivoli, Turin (2005) and Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2005).
