Pablo Valbuena


Almost Cinema. Vooruit. Ghent, BE. 2009

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 overlap 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 or the use of light and projection as a the prime matter of his work.

Pablo has presented his work recently at the 5th International Seoul Biennale (Seoul, Korea), Museum of the Moving Image (New York), 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), at the gallery Max Estrella in Madrid and other exhibitions and 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) or Vooruit-Ghent University (Belgium).


Sites Studies

Sites Studies are different video installation series (2010 - present) which explore the transformation of space through perception. These studies in video present site-specific ephemeral light interventions where the point of view has been fixed allowing to enhance perspective based alterations, materialized on displays that mirror the scale and spatial configuration of the selected locations.
