Laurent Montaron processes the image (photographic, filmic) and its codes of representation, to explore the possible relationship of the image with narrative and with time. He questions for instance the conjunctions of the image and sound or the image and language. How the artist relates to the cinema is conveyed notably through his interest in the recording process, or yet through a search for spatialisation or reverberation of it, and through a subtle setting in motion of the image, however still it may be. Thus, the attention given to the notion of the itinerary and to the view of layouts is central to Laurent Montaron's work.
In his works, Laurent Montaron probes our experience of time and memory, through images of the psyche, and projection or prediction phenomena. The evocation of the individual's extrasensory abilities, questions to do with destiny or possible "clairvoyance", lend Laurent Montaron's research the power of the art of suggestion. In the manner of Lacan's Borromean knot, Laurent Montaron's work crystallises the intersection of the real, the symbolic and the imaginary.
