VALENTINA CANSECO

Brazil/Chili/France

Valentina Canseco, minimalism or abstraction 

Valentina Canseco (1985) currently works at 6B workshops in Saint-Denis. She is of Brazilian-Chilean origin. Her practice ranges from drawing to installation. Valentina Canseco looks and dissects the urban objects that surround us, mainly those made from the most humble materials. Fascinated by the crate, she extracted a module from it that she declines, deconstructs and uses as a matrix with infinite potential. Through these transformative games, the pieces of this everyday object become abstract shapes and overlap until we forget their original destination.
