Clélia Zernik, a graduate of the Ecole Normale Supérieure and Doctor of Aesthetics, has been a professor of philosophy of art at Beaux-Arts de Paris since 2011.
Her first research focuses on the relationship between art and science, as elaborated by art psychologists and phenomenologists (cf. Perception-cinéma, Vrin, Paris, 2012; L'œil et l'objectif, Vrin, 2014). These are now turning towards cinema (Les Sept samouraïs d'Akira Kurosawa, éditions Yellow Now, Paris, 2013, L'attrait du café, éditions Yellow Now, Paris 2017, L'attrait du fantôme, éditions Yellow Now, Paris, 2019) and Japanese contemporary art, thanks to study stays at the University of Waseda and the University of Tokyo. She is currently working on the question of the lining of images (Japanese surfaces and depths) and regularly collaborates in magazines such as Critique d'art and Art Press.
