Valérie Blass

About Valérie Blass

Valérie Blass’ sculptures hybridize respective strategies in the confusion of figurative elements and in the disordering of reflexive narrative projections. Through the interplay of anthropomorphism and formal interchangeability, the artist empties out the distinction between abstraction and figuration in the staging of a deep ambivalence, ultimately reorienting the viewer’s points of reference.

For over ten years, Blass’ works have been exhibited on national and international levels and have been acquired for numerous public and private collections. In 2012 the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal organized a major solo exhibition focusing on Blass, accompanied with the printing of a monograph. Her work was first exhibited in New York in 2013 at The Hole, as well as in Istanbul during the same year at the Galeri Manâ and at Art International Istanbul. Blass is regularly included in art fairs in Canada and in the US.
