SCAD Atlanta, in partnership with France-Atlanta, presents a solo exhibition by Laurent Grasso.

For this exhibition Grasso focused on his interest in observation, control and surveillance.  His film “On Air,” features a falcon fitted with a micro camera that films while flying over United Arab Emirates’ lunar-like landscapes. This transforms a traditional form of hunting into an archaic spying tool, evoking a living and unidentifiable drone.

Grasso often intentionally manipulates imagery by imposing unique and unusual perspectives onto his subject matter, thereby subverting the viewer's instinct to accept what they see at face value

About the Artist:

Laurent Grasso’s work has been exhibited extensively worldwide, particularly in Europe and the United States, notably in solo exhibitions at the MACM (Montréal, Canada in 2013), the Jeu de Paume (Paris, France, 2012), the Bass Museum of Art (Miami Beach, FL, USA, 2011) as well as in many international biennales. Additionally, Grasso has created several installations in the public space. Grasso was awarded the Marcel Duchamp Prize in 2008 and is the subject of major monographs as Uraniborg (2012), Future Archæology (2012) and Laurent Grasso : The Black Body Radiation published by Les Presses du Réel.

Laurent Grasso (1972) lives and works between Paris and New York. He is represented by Sean Kelly Gallery in New York, Galerie Valentin in Paris, and Edouard Malingue Gallery in Hong Kong.
