Gregory Chatonsky

France – Canada

Pioneer of Net Art and AI. He founded in 1994. His exploration of digital materiality led him to question the idea of ruins and flows since the 2000s. In 2009, he began experimenting with AI, followed by a seminar at ENS Ulm on artificial imagination, where he is a guest artist-researcher. Chatonsky's work is a vast exploration of the ambiguous relationship between technology and existence.

Using a multitude of media, both digital and traditional, the artist has developed a body of work in which language, the body, the city, extinction, the network, the landscape, memory, etc. weave a fiction without narrative. Each new work is an interaction that materially takes its place in a modular structure that decomposes the world. The corpus as a whole is the latent space of an artificial intelligence.

He has exhibited at the Palais de Tokyo, the Pompidou Center, MOCA Taipei, the Museum of the Moving Image, the Hubei Wuhan Museum, NC art and others. His works are part of public and private collections (CNAP, FAC, BNF, Hubei Museum, Granet Museum, etc.).
