Laurent Montaron's practice—spanning film, photography, installation, sound, and performance—investigates strategies of vision. It is a media archaeology examining the ways in which technological innovations have continually given rise to new ways of observing and understanding the world. Often frustrating the viewer's experience, Montaron's works evoke the limits of the visible, where meaning is deferred or denied, pointing to "a crack in a logic of image-production and circulation which tends to resolve everything—art included—into the operative."
Conceived to document three solo exhibitions—Dioramas at Pernod Ricard Foundation, Paris (2016–17), the show at Les Moulins de Paillard in Poncé-sur-le-Loir (2018), and Replica at CCA – Center for Contemporary Art Tel Aviv (2018)—the publication also features essays by Philippe-Alain Michaud and Mike Sperlinger that offer a comprehensive overview of the artist's oeuvre, extending across nearly twenty years.
