Laurent Montaron

Born in 1972 in Verneuil d'Avre et d'Iton.
Lives and works in Paris, France.
Laurent Montaron's work combines a variety of media, including photography, film, installations, sound, and sculpture. He is also an exhibition curator. His works draw their inspiration from the recent history of technology. They reveal the weight of the transformations that have taken place in our ways of being with the advent of technology. Through a critical examination of the tools that shape our representations, his work is based on some of the paradoxes that come with our awareness of modernity. His work seeks to highlight the way in which innovations have continually prompted new ways of observing and understanding the world.
