Laurent Grasso is a connoisseur of the supernatural, but he won't admit to being a believer. But Will is doubtful: a master of effect in its most abstract sense, whether it is a floating stone--first photographed, then translated into painting reminiscent of a renaissance painter--or recreating a solar eclipse, Grasso's high-tech installations reinterpret natural and unnatural phenomena. His most recent project, Nomiya, is a restaurant on the roof of the Palais De Tokyo, where 10 strangers dine together nightly. Grasso will be a featured artist at Manif d'art 5: La biennale de Québec (18 minutes).
