PABLO VALBUENA Para-Site [mattress factory], 2011 video projection on architecture
Pablo Valbuena (Madrid, 1978) develops artistic projects and research focused on space, time and perception.
Some key elements of the construction of his work are the overlaping of physical and virtual space, the generation of mental spaces by the viewer, the dissolution of the limit between real and perceived, the unity of time and space, and the use of light and projection as the prime matter of his work.
He has presented his work recently at the Museum of the Moving Image (New York), 5th International Seoul Biennale (Seoul, Korea), OK Center for Contemporary Art (Austria), Laboral Centro de Arte (Spain), Netherlands Media Arts Institute (Amsterdam), BankArt (Japan), Matadero Madrid (Spain), Museum of Contemporary Art Taipei (Taiwan), gallery Max Estrella in Madrid and others. He has also presented public art projects in Singapore, Canada, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, USA, Brazil and Spain.
His large site-specific interventions in the public space have been seen in The Hague City Hall (the Netherlands), Museo Universitario de Arte Contemporáneo (Mexico City), Plaza de las Letras-Medialab Prado (Madrid), Murcia City Hall (Spain) and Vooruit-Ghent University (Belgium).
