Paul Valentin

born 1990 in Munich, lives and works in Munich, DE

Paul Valentin's multidisciplinary practice includes video, animation, installation, sculpture and sound. His works deal with paradoxes, philosophical dilemmas and with classical themes of metaphysics, such as the question of truth, the nothing and the form of the world. Predominantly active in CG (computer graphics) based video art, his works refer to the literature of surrealism, romanticism and magic realism as well as to contemporary writings which are to be classified at the border between philosophy and science.
