Graduated from the University of Paris VIII and Le Fresnoy National Studio of Contemporary Arts, Laurent Pernot has been developping a polymorphous work for a decade through various media: video, installation, photography, objects, light, sculpture.
His poetry is focused on the flow of time, the impermanence of things, the visible and the invisible rendered perceptible by a certain use of materials, light, images and movement.
In his own way, the artist explores the interactions between man and nature as well as the question of origins, which are among the major issues of the contemporary world. Nourished by scholarly references, his works are imbued with anxious gentleness that manifests loss or disappearance and induces the sensation of a floating world whose fragility threatens us.
No man is master of the wind, each holds his sailboat as he can. Laurent Pernot
