Valentin Carron: Learning from Martigny

by Valentin Carron, Lionel Bovier, Nicolas Pages
     
 
Neither authentic nor kitsch, readymade nor traditional craft, the works of Swiss artist Valentin Carron (born 1975) play with material ambiguity--fake wood, fake concrete, fake bronze--to unpack the iconography of power and authority. Learning from Martigny offers photographic source material intertwined with images of his sculptures and paintings.
