Valentin Carron | b. 1977 in Martigny, Switzerland

Valentin Carron is one of the important youngest-generation Swiss artists. In recent years Valentin Carron has emerged with an oeuvre that combines central traditions of contemporary art making and questions them in terms of their current meaning. In this way he includes approaches to appropriation in his work as well as Pop Art traditions, the sociological search for clues and post-studio production. Carron represented Switzerland at the 55th Venice Biennale and had a recent solo show at Kunsthalle Bern.
