Valentin Carron

edited by Katya Garcia-Anton, Beatrix Ruf

Valentin Carron’s sculptures mark a renewal of appropriationist discourse: through the re-employment of vernacular forms that are not part of the dominant culture, the artist develops project confusing genres. Neither authentic or kitsch, ready made or craft, these objects play with ambiguity (fake wood, fake concrete, fake bronze, etc.) and with an iconography of power and authority. Alongside several artists such as Andro Wekua, Mai-Thu Perret, and Vidya Gastaldon, Valentin Carron marks the emergence of a new artistic scene in Switzerland. Published with the Centre d`art contemporain, Geneva, and the Kunsthalle Zurich.
