Gregory Chatonsky Born in 1971 in Paris, France. Lives and works in Paris and Montreal. For Grégory Chatonsky, technologies, and in particular the Internet, constitute an important source of reflection. Forming the paradoxes of the network and the discrepancies between its technological and existential dimensions could summarize a research that is deployed on several mediums: installation, video, photography, writing, drawing and sculpture. His works could evoke infinite spaces in which the fragmentation of attention reigns. The network becomes a world where the boundaries between technology and the human being become blurred. His practice tries to draw the outlines of a new imaginary whose invention would be technical.
