Laurent Grasso & Neon

One of the exhibits currently on view at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal is Laurent Grasso's Uraniborg.  A multimedia show that transforms the gallery space into a dark labyrinth.  While orienting oneself through the corridors, the viewer is presented with Grasso's paintings, installations, and videos juxtaposed with true historical artifacts to create what he calls "false historical memory." In the darkness neon installations offer a source of light.
