Claude Closky is a French artist, born in Paris in 1963.

Reception[edit]

Closky won the "Grand prix des Arts plastiques" (1999) and the Marcel Duchamp Prize (2005)[1] awarded by the ADIAF[2]

Dike Blair wrote in Artforum Magazine that "The lightness of Closky's art belies the depth of its absurdist heredity. Working in a post-modernist mode, Closky's art works combine aspects of the Situationists, Fluxus, Beckett, Tall, Daniel Buren, and Andy Warhol."[3]
