Laurent Montaron (born 1972 in Verneuil-sur-Avre), is a French visual artist.[1][2]


Laurent Montaron is an interdisciplinary artist working across film, photography, installation, sound and objects.[3] His work is suffused with the contemporary history of the media and question the tools that shape our representations [4],.[5] By revealing the sometimes irrational element of belief involved with emerging techniques; his works remind us that while technology has provided us with new means of perceiving and representing reality it has not necessarily brought us closer from the truth for it has also given rise to new ways for questioning paradoxes attendant on our awareness of modernity.[6]
