Laurent Grasso | the artist




The artist Laurent Grasso
Born 1972, Mulhouse, France.
Lives and works in Paris, France.

Style and technique of the artist: Installation art, Marcel Duchamp Prize, Video, Sharjah Biennale, Art and Electronic media,

Whether he is (re)working more or less identifiable forms of our control-oriented society, or subverting the cinematic techniques and conventions that shape our collective imagination, Grasso’s created environments combine atavistic fears, scientific evidence and ominous contemporary mythologies. His works are in ways reminiscent of the paranoid retro-futuristic prophecies of Charles Fourier two centuries ago. Light, sound, radio and electromagnetic waves, natural, paranormal and meteorological phenomena are regularly incorporated to create new sensory experiences.

This new video appears to be a beautifully photographed astronomical film of a total solar eclipse at sunset. From its first moments to the reappearance of the solar disk, the eclipse reveals sublime lights usually hidden in the sun’s glare. If one views this video believing it to be a scientific document, the experience is memorable…
