If Guillaume Valenti focused on the bright, geometrical space of the white cube for a while, now, he works on “alternative spaces” such as former industrial warehouses now used as creative spaces, questioning the notions of starkness, neglect, end of activities, and reuse of the installations. From personal documentation or images collected on the Internet, the painting takes shape, new objects appear and settle in the composition, and the artwork becomes fiction, the representation of a mental space evoking both purely pictorial issues and the current condition of images. Correlations between elements trigger a metafiction where what is off-screen takes the forefront and starts a reflection on the action of exhibiting and the spectator’s position.
