Laurent Goldring

Laurent Goldring, philosopher and artist, has worked on representation in general and of the body in particular, since 1995. He questions the current dominance of the analogue image (photos, movies, video) by insisting on its utter feebleness.

His work demonstrates that the body has scarcely been presented or regarded as apart from very specific codes. Goldring’s main idea is that the image is not a representation but an organ, just like other organs.

He applies the same principles and effects in his works on portraits and on the representation of everyday life.
There are many choreographers who share his interest in these subjects, and their collaboration has resulted in the emergence of a new body in the field of dance.

With Isabelle Schad, he created the series of pieces Unturtled #1 - 4, Der Bau and Collective Jumps.
