Antoine Catala gained a mathematics degree from the Univeristé Paul Sabatier in Tolouse, before studying BA Sonic Arts at Middlesex Univeristy in London and a BA in Fine Art at London Guildhall University. Catala’s work is always playful, and yet belied by a dislocating sense of loss. He unflinchingly embraces new technologies as a means of interrogating the meaning of human relationships in the digital age, and in doing so creates works that are sharply perceptive, tinged with irony and yet intent on capturing a profound sense of what it means to be human in the modern world.
