Pablo Valbuena develops art projects and research focused on space, time and perception. Born in Spain and currently based in the south of France.
Some key elements of this exploration are the overlap of the real and the virtual, the generation of mental spaces, the dissolution of the boundaries between reality and perception, the links between space and time, the observer’s experience as focus of the work and the use of light or sound as prime matter. These ideas are mostly developed site-specific, formulated as a direct response to the perceptual qualities, physical conditions and surrounding influences of a certain location or space.
The resulting works have been presented in Europe, Asia and America in a wide range of places as site-specific commissions, museum, gallery exhibitions and large-scale urban interventions. Pablo has lectured about these topics in academic contexts like UCLA, Art Center in Pasadena, Seoul Museum of Art, University of Southern California, Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia, Medialab-Prado or the University of Bern among others.
