When the talented Laurent Grasso questions the evolution, it ends up with a “machine film” that is written, evolves and changes on a daily basis with preexisting images and narrations, like a defective database that keeps on turning. The artist worked on this idea for three years, as asked by the musée d'Orsay wishing to highlight Darwin’s work on the evolution with today’s issues.
Outside the The Origins of the World exhibition, you can come and enjoy Laurent Grasso's exhibition called Artificialis. From May 19 to July 18, 2021, let yourselves be carried away by these poetic and modern works completing the compelling exhibition of the Musée d'Orsay.
And for Studio Grasso, “the opacity of the world is more likely to result from an accumulation of information to decipher than from geographically unknown areas to be cleared”. Therefore, instead of shooting new pictures, the artist simply looked up on the Internet and explored what already exists, a very thorough analysis of big data. And coronavirus helped him out on this project because there has been a growing virtualization of the world.
The result will be screened on the large towers of the museum. Besides the movie, the artist will present a series of paintings and sculptures still under development.
