Laurent Grasso

Solo Exhibition - [22.05.12 - 23.09.12]
URANIBORG

Curated by the artist himself in conjunction with the Jeu de Paume’s Marta Gill and the Montreal Museum of Contemporary Art’s Marie Fraser, Laurent Grasso presents his solo exhibition URANIBORG at the Galerie nationale du Jeu de Paume, which will subsequently be showcased in the Montreal Museum of Contemporary Art.  Laurent Grasso has envisaged this exhibition around the habitual concerns of his work, in which the relation between time and temporality becomes ambiguous, the relation between the known and the unknown are emphasized, and with an existence of a simultaneity of temporal and spatial experiences, as the origin of the works that he created. The theme of this exhibition concentrates on the artist’s investigation of observation as a channel for manufacturing reality and enforcing the power systems.  In this exhibition, the artist extends the concept of “diffuse power”, which Michel Foucault called the “de- individualized power”, in order to elicit belief about the panoptical strategies of power. In URANIBORG, Laurent Grasso deploys videos, sculptures, paintings, drawings and apparatus to explore four different manipulations of the heavens, surveillance, “political ghosts” and deceptive beauty. Laurent’s works often conjures up uncertainty or doubt, in the fields of science, history, perception or belief, in turn creates parallel simulation capable of testing our knowledge base and critical capacity. Furthermore, Laurent Grasso’s exhibition challenges the architectural design of the host space, and simulates the audiences’ perceptions of his works. At the Jeu de Paume, Grasso transformed the open space of the gallery into a construction of a labyrinthine set-up with long and windowed corridor that segments the space, based on the panopticon idea. This derives from the idea of a constantly shifting perspective: “The idea is to construct a floating viewpoint, thereby creating a sense of discrepancy with regard to reality. We move from one space to another, which is also how we produce states of consciousness.” The special setting dramatically alters the audiences’ routine during the visit by impelling them into a singular experiential space. As such, the design of the setting plays with various levels of visual experience and perception, and gives expression to the connections between each of the films shown. For more information, please visit the Jeu de Paume website.   Press review: Laurent Grasso, d’une impressionnante habileté
