Pablo Valbuena – Array
Pablo Valbuena returns to TodaysArt with two installations from his Array series, exploring the relationship between a form and the temporal context of its movement. The Spanish artist, currently based in the south of France, develops art projects and research that focuses on space, time and perception.
His practice explores the overlap of the actual and the virtual, the generation of mental spaces by the observer, the dissolution of boundaries between real and perceived, the bonds connecting space and time, the primacy of subjective experience as a phenomenological tool to stimulate reflection and the use of light and sound as prime matter.
Valbuena develops these ideas contextually and formulates them as a direct response to the perceptual qualities, physical conditions and surrounding influences of a certain location or space. The resulting works have taken place in public and private institutions, biennials and galleries in the form of exhibitions, site-specific commissions and large-scale public interventions throughout Europe, Asia and America. His work N 520437 E 041900, a large intervention that was projected on the city hall of The Hague, left a lasting impression at TodaysArt in 2008.
