Ciro Duclos b. 1991 (lives and works in Amsterdam) is a Dutch artist with a fascination for insignificant materials, everyday objects and the experience of space.
He graduated from the Royal Academy for Visual Arts in The Hague in 2015, after which he immediately started producing his own work.
Duclos' love for materials that "don't want" such as concrete, glass and marble greatly influences his final output. Material research is therefore always the foundation of Duclos' practice.
He influences the perception of time and space through reflections, shifts in perspective and framing. His work asks the question; 'What do you perceive and where is the boundary between reality and imagination?'
Duclos is co-founder of the artists collective Indebt Studio, a multisciplinary research studio with which he organized numerous exhibitions and art expressions in the studio and gallery space Paradijsplein 1.
In 2018, Duclos received the Young Talent work contribution from the Mondriaan Fund, with which he showed work during Art Rotterdam 2020. In 2019 he exhibited in the group exhibition Influencing the Influencer in the Torch Gallery. His work is in the collections of the Stedelijk Museum Den Bosch and OKA Foundation.
