From Monday, November 14, 2016 to Saturday, January 7, 2017.
Curated by Lorenzo Benedetti.
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.
The work of Laurent Montaron (born 1972) has been the subject of several high-profile solo exhibitions at such venues as the IAC in Villeurbanne, the Centre National de la Photographie in Paris, FRAC in the Champagne-Ardenne, the Mercer Union in Toronto, the Kunstverein in Fribourg and the Kunsthaus-Baselland in Basel. He has also been invited to contribute to a number of prestigious group exhibitions such as the Venice and Sydney biennales.
The film La réciprocité du récit (2016) was made with the support of the Centre national des arts plastiques (CNAP) and the Fondation Nationale des Arts Graphiques et Plastiques (FNAGP).
