The Fondation d’entreprise Ricard is pleased to present Laurent Montaron’s Dioramas exhibition.
This show features brand new works, showcasing the artist’s creative diversity. His films, photographs, objects and installations convey how the way we represent space and time has changed, in line with the history of technology.
Referencing sound and image reproduction and broadcast technologies (which have themselves revolutionised the way information is disseminated) his work questions the place of experience and how it is broadcast today.
Designed as a series of dioramas, this exhibition offers a unique vision of the Fondation d’entreprise Ricard exhibition space and the notion of exhibiting generally, inviting viewers to consider the omnipresent gaze and the place which experience occupies.
