Birthplace: Paris, France
Visual artist Laurent Goldring was born in Paris in 1957 and lives, sculpts, draws and makes videos in Paris. He studied philosophy before photography, video and media art. Since 1995, his work has focused on the representation of the body, and a questioning of the domination of the analogue image (photo, film, video) by revealing how limiting it can be. His approach has been of great interest to a number of choreographers, whose process follows the same questioning. He is currently working on spaces, according to the main idea that “space is an organ.” This idea led to the recent pieces co-choreographed with Saskia Hölbling and Isabelle Schad. The installation made for Benoît Lachambre in High heels too is directly linked with this process, as well as his most recent films.
