FLATLAND to SPARK Art Fair Vienna
February 14, 2022
FLATLAND will be present with works by renowned French photographer Valérie Belin for the second edition of SPARK Art Fair Vienna the upcoming 24th till the 27th of March 2022. SPARK Art Fair Vienna debuted with an innovative new format in June 2021, offering an exciting way for collectors, museums and institutions to discover works from both challenger and established artists with an international scope. At the fair all booths are equal and invite the audience with an open form. In a first for art fairs, SPARK exclusively featured solo presentations by galleries and artists.
SPARK 2022 will be held at the historic Marx Halle in central Vienna with a comprehensive offer of peripheral experiences.
Initially influenced by various minimalist and conceptual tendencies, Valérie Belin became interested in the photographic medium in its own right; this is at once the subject of her work and her way of reflecting and creating. Light, matter and the “body” of things and beings in general, as well as their transformations and representations, constitute the terrain of her experiments and the world of her artistic ideas. Her work is articulated in photographic series, each one produced within the framework of a specific project.
Valérie Belin’s work has been exhibited in major shows at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) New York; Fondation Cartier, Paris; Musée du Louvre, Paris; De Pont Museum, Tilburg; Ullens Center for Contemporary Art (UCCA), Beijing; National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul, South Korea; Fondation Cartier pour l’Art Contemporain, Paris, France; Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Paris, France; Centre Pompidou, Paris, France.
