Born in 1978 in Spain and currently based in the south of France, Pablo Valbuena is known for art installations focused on space, time and perception.
His art explores the overlap of the actual and the virtual, the creation of intellectual spaces by the observer, and the dissolution of boundaries between real and perceived. Pablo’s research examines the bonds connecting space and time and the use of light and sound as prime matter.
These ideas are developed in direct response to the perceptual qualities, physical conditions and surrounding influences of the location or space chosen to display the art piece.
Pablo Valbuena’s art installations have come to life in public and private institutions, biennials and galleries through exhibitions, site-specific commissions and large-scale public events throughout Europe, Asia and America. Pablo also frequently addresses these topics in academic contexts through artist talks and other speaking engagements.
