Valentin Carron by Valentin Carron( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in French and English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tiré du site Internet de JRP/Ringier: "In this new artist's book, Valentin Carron (*1975, lives and works in Martigny, Switzerland), presents a series of collages mixing recent sculptures, details of backgrounds, and PhotoShop effects, all specially realized to be printed in this volume. If Carron's sculptures mark a renewal of appropriation through the re-employment of vernacular forms that are not part of the dominant culture, the artist develops a project confusing genres : neither authentic nor kitsch, neither readymade nor really craft, his objects play with ambiguity (fake wood, fake concrete, fake bronze, etc.) and with an iconography of power and authority (public sculptures or commemorative monuments, traditional forms, etc.). This book reflects his sculptural practice in the two-dimensionality of the page and the space of printed matter. Designed by Gavillet & Rust, this book includes a contribution by the writer Julien Maret and is published on the occasion of Valentin Carron's Swiss Pavilion at the Venice Biennale. Published in collaboration with Pro Helvetia on the occasion of the Swiss participation at the 55th Venice Biennale 2013."
Work hard : selections by Valentin Carron( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Work Hard', the curatorial debut of celebrated Swiss artist Valentin Carron (born 1977), presents a creative discourse between a surprising group of artists: Edmond Bille, Vittorio Brodmann, Marguerite Burnat-Provins, Luciano Castelli, Claudia Comte, Sylvain Croci-Torti, Latifa Echakhch, Frédéric Gabioud, Mathis Gasser, Fabrice Gygi, Andreas Hochuli, Trix and Robert Haussmann, David Hominal, Bernhard Luginbühl, Urs Lüthi, Fabian Marti, Méret Oppenheim, Simon Paccaud, Mai-Thu Perret, Ugo Rondinone, Denis Savary, Daniel Spoerri and Jean Tinguely. In this book Carron suggests an imaginary time and place in art history while conjuring mythologies of labor and exploring the very personal approach that he took to understanding the narrative of national identity. Essays by Mai-Thu Perret and Balthazar Lovay plus an annotated walkthrough by Carron evoke the vernacular poetry of quirky Swissness

Learning from Martigny by Valentin Carron( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tiré du site Internet de JRP/Ringier: "In "Learning from Las Vegas" (1977), Robert Venturi, Denise Scott Brown, and Steven Izenour, as a call to reinvigorate architectural design with symbolic content, advocated the study of the commercial strip and in particular, the role that signs play in conveying meaning and providing order to the landscape. In "Learning from Martigny," Valentin Carron (*1975, lives and works in Martigny, Switzerland), offers a photo-documentation of his surroundings - the sources for some of his works - intertwined with images of his sculptures or paintings. If Carron's sculptures mark a renewal of appropriation through the re-employment of vernacular forms that are not part of the dominant culture, the artist develops a project confusing genres. Neither authentic nor kitsch, neither readymade nor really craft, his objects play with ambiguity (fake wood, fake concrete, fake bronze, etc.) and with an iconography of power and authority (public sculptures or commemorative monuments, traditional forms, etc.). Designed by the studio Gavillet & Rust/Eigenheer, this artist's book includes a new contribution by the writer Nicolas Pages."
