Of French origin, Laurent Craste is living and creating in Montreal. At the heart of Laurent’s artistic pursuit is the decorative inventory of original models from the main 18th and 19th century European porcelain manufacturers. These models are used as a basis for research on the status of the collectibles, by subjecting them to a practice of deconstruction and violent alteration of their formal structures, or by contaminating their traditional decorations through a subversive process of subject substitution. Enjoy.
