Air Into Solid: Solo show by epodium artist Paul Valentin

at Karl & Faber Fine Art Auctions

Air Into Solid

When Paul Valentin received the 2019 Art Prize of the Munich Academy of Fine Arts Foundation sponsored by Karl & Faber, he not only had the prize money to look forward to but also a solo exhibition in the auction house’s rooms in the heart of Munich.
The philosophical questions about the Nature of the World, about the Nothing and Truth are recurring themes in his works. They make clear the confusion these terms hold for a visual artist who is familiar with digital worlds and wants to understand the analog world to simulate it on the computer for animated films and other works.

An artist book accompanies the exhibition and was also made possible by the Karl & Faber Art Prize. Curated by Dr. Anne-Cécile Foulon in collaboration with the artist.

The exhibition is part of VARIOUS OTHERS which initiates cooperative and international art projects in galleries, artist–run spaces and museums in Munich. While serving as a content-driven forum for contemporary art that takes place each year in September, our mission is to intensify exchange and dialogue between the art scene in Munich and international partners, guests and media.
