1951, in Huesca, Spain.
From sculpture to installation and action practice. Since the 90‘s,
Valentin Torrens has performed in 25 countries of Europe, America and Asia,
presenting his works in international festivals and one-man actions.
Interested in media uses and rewards. Perception as source and limit of
our desires. The politics of perception, its liberation. The social shaping
of the meaning. Communication as suggestion. Visual poetry in unconventional
languages. Breaking and challenging performative resources. Changing strategies.
Decoding the accommodation of art and culture, its connivance with the horror.
A double code, real/illusion, of the artist as a shadow, his own and the
context shadow, which transform artist and context. Humour and liminal play,
short-circuiting the language‘s logic and the audience‘s mind.
Action under dim light, tressing the direct perception.
In the last six years, curating the performance area in multimedia festival
PERIFERIAS, huesca and others as TERRITORIS NOMADES in Barcelona.
