Laurent Segretier

1010980

Artist Laurent Segretier, who was recently interviewed by Dazed & Confused Magazine, uses digital media to distort photographs and film footage.

I am particularly interested in the films he made that seem to be using found pornographic footage. I like the idea of showing something provocative but taking away the obviousness of it and the fact that certain things are always recognisable.

He also describes himself as being part of the ‘new media generation‘ in France and as an artist this is a description that perhaps myself and many others will start to adopt.
