About the Work

His art is defined by appropriation and reproduction, copying or imitating as it does everyday objects. The artist draws on contemporary resources from his immediate surroundings and places them into a new, artistic context. Finding seemingly familiar objects recontextualised, viewers are given the opportunity to read the reproductions with a new cultural meaning. By raising questions about authenticity versus reproduction and tradition versus identity, Carron has established himself as a premier Swiss artist of his generation.
