Charles Recher

Charles Recher is a US-American installation artist and filmmaker who lives and works in Miami Beach, Florida. Recher has created in excess of one hundred films and videos. His work runs the gamut from the film "Kwagh-hir (Thing of Magic)," a documentary of the theater tradition of the Tiv people of Nigeria, to "Cars & Fish," Miami Performing Arts Center’s inaugural video installation, which cast 600-foot long swirling images onto adjacent building façades during Art Basel/Miami Beach in 2005.[1]
