Laurent Perbos

Born in 1971

Lives and works in Marseilles

« Laurent Perbos belongs to that generation of thirty-year old artists who force the banal and the everyday environment to be critically analysed and subjected to the necessity of a form of de-naturalization (this is also the objective that Roland Barthes assigned to his Mythologies : to fight the doxa).
In a continual 'to-ing and fro-ing' between the samples of motifs taken and reinjected, yet modified, into reality, Laurent Perbos, by accentuating the rupture that all processes of representation suppose, opens up a large gap where uncertainty hovers ». Jean-Marc Huitorel
