Valentina Furian’s practice explores the connection between reality and fiction, pushing the boundary between this duality. Her research is focused on the existing relationship between humans and natural beings; examining the worth of the wilderness, animal and human domestication as a kind of power. As a result, her landscapes are frequently filled with non-human performativity.
Valentina Furian has exhibited work at MAXXI – National Museum of XXI Century Arts, Rome; Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin, Paris; and Fundación Proa, Buenos Aires, among others.
