Born in Martigny in 1977, is considered one of the important younger-generation Swiss artists. He has emerged with an oeuvre that combines central traditions of contemporary art making and questions them in terms of their current meaning. In this way he includes approaches to appropriation in his work as well as Pop Art traditions, the sociological search for clues and post-studio production. More recently, Carron has broadened his range of subjects, looking toward the presentation of culture and history in museum settings and taking on themes of power, politics, and classification.
