Guillaume Valenti was born in 1987 in Évry. He graduated from the Beaux-Arts de Paris and lives and works in Paris. His work has been exhibited at the Salon de Montrouge, the Lambert Foundation, and the Palais de l’Institut de France, among others.
Worlds cut off from the world, the museum and the amateur cabinet are among the rare spaces designed to draw attention to their walls, and thus act on the temporary but clear separation between their users and the rest of reality. Guillaume Valenti is interested in the image on the wall, or more specifically in the image of the image on the wall. In the same way as in theatre, the paintings constitute a synthesis and a mediation of reality in a restricted space-time continuum, a scenic composition which isolates a moment from the common world to then return to it with a different eye.
