Born in 1972, winner of the Marcel Duchamp Prize in 2008, Laurent Grasso is one of the most active French artists on the international contemporary scene. He is represented by the Perrotin Gallery in Paris, where he lives and works. His delicate and varied work, using video as well as painting, neon, sculpture and installation, plays on the limits between fiction and reality and explores notions of space and temporality. Confronting contemporary issues, Laurent Grasso exploits the fictional potential of both documentary and historical but also mythological sources and questions the viewer about his perception of reality. In recent years, several solo exhibitions showcased the artist's universe in important institutions around the world: at the Palais de Tokyo and at the Center Georges Pompidou in 2010, at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington in 2011, at the Jeu de Paume in 2012 or at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Montreal in 2013. This book is an opportunity to return to a singular artistic process, on the major and most recent works of Laurent Grasso.
