PIERRE-LAURENT CASSIÈRE (FR) – Distorsions
In association with the Musées d’art et d’histoire and the Maison Tavel
Pierre-Laurent Cassière (b. 1982) is a french artist whose practice is mainly influenced by media archaeology. Through kinetic sculpture, expanded cinema and sound installation, his audiovisual artworks often combine historical techniques with contemporary technologies to propose contemplative apparatuses that confront us with our perceptive habits.
