Laurent Montaron (b.1972, Verneuil-sur-Avre, France) is an interdisciplinary artist, working across film, photography, installation, sound and performance. His work is suffused with the contemporary history of the media. Through his exploration of the tools that shape our representations, Montaron lays bare the paradoxes that accompany our awareness of modernity, drawing on the history of technology to examine systems of belief and investigate the ways in which innovations have continually given rise to new ways of observing and understanding our world.
