Laurent Goldring

The philosopher and visual artist Laurent Goldring has been working on themes of representation and, in particular, of the body since 1995. He questions the current predominance of analog images (photos, films, video) by insisting on their complete inadequacy. His works show that the body is rarely depicted or seen as independent of very specific codes. Goldring's fundamental idea is that images are not representations but organs. He uses the same principles and effects in both his portrait works and representations of the everyday. He has had numerous exhibitions (Centre Pompidou (Paris), Foundation Gulbenkian (Paris), Fondation Cartier (Paris) et al.) and worked internationally with various choreographers (including Saskia Hölbling, Sandrine Buring, Isabelle Schad, Louise Lecavallier, Benoît Lachambre, Germana Civera, Bernhard Lang, Donata d'Urso, JM Rabeux, Xavier Le Roy). The performance ›Collective Jumps‹, which he created together with Isabelle Schad, can be seen at PACT in 2019 as part of the German Dance Award.
