About

Born in 1967, Valéry Grancher is a French-born artist, theorist, curator and lecturer, living and working in Paris and Hong Kong since 2014.

He first became well known in the mid-1990s for being one the first net artists (online art) and for his ‘Google paintings’ but his artistic practice is vast and covers internet art, video, photography, painting, AI painting and VR installation. Valéry Grancher is an explorer. His curiosity leads him to investigate all kinds of territories such as the different media and new technology to define new forms and concepts.

On 2014, the French public collection National Fund for Contemporary Art, National Centre for Visual Arts (FNAC) acquired his video installations Geopol (a 24-hour tracking shot of the horizon at the North Pole) and Tanguntsa (a 6-hour shot in deep Amazonia).

His productions are included in several public collections such like Cartier Foundation for contemporary arts (Paris), Maison Européenne de la photographie (Paris), Carillo Gil Museum (Mexico), Berkeley Art Museum Pacific Film Archive (Berkeley), ZKM (Karlsruhe), Bandjoune Station (Cameroon), VMAC (Hong Kong)  and many others...

Valéry Grancher has exhibited and gave performances in institutions worldwide, and his work is in numerous private and public collections.


"As you may see on my website, I'm using various media from paintings to new media because during all my life I perceived the world as a not linear one, but as a fabric of reality with parallel universes. As an artist, I had to deal with this nonlinear and multi-parallel universes by jumping from figuration to abstraction and sometimes new media, to give a kind of Quantic dimension of my productions! We are today in a post-medium condition and the main issue is not the medium itself (you may use as many as you want) but the way you're dealing with concept and forms, by inventing a new kind of game rules.


I guess that the most important thing is to focus my energy on the work and the way I'm moving through media and between them...

A simulation has no moral, prejudice, or meaning. Like nature, it just is, as facts. Art has the same behavior by being both a reality and a simulation! "

“Reality is that which doesn’t go away when you stop believing in it.” Philip K Dick

他在90年代中期首次成为第一批网络艺术家(网上艺术)和他的“谷歌画作”,但他的艺术实践范围广泛,涵盖了互联网艺术,录像,摄影,绘画和装置。 ValéryGrancher是一位探险家。他的好奇心导致他调查各种领域,如不同的媒体和新技术,以确定新的形式和概念。

2014年,法国公共收藏国家当代艺术基金会,国家视觉艺术中心(FNAC)收购了他的视频装置Geopol(24小时在北极地平线追踪拍摄)和Tanguntsa(6小时拍摄深亚马逊河)。

ValéryGrancher在全球各地的机构展出并演出,他的工作是在众多的私人和公共收藏。


“正如你可能在我的网站上看到的那样,我使用各种媒体从绘画到新媒体,因为在我一生中,我认为世界不是线性的,而是作为具有平行宇宙的现实世界的结构。作为一名艺术家,我必须通过从形象跳跃到抽象以及有时新媒体来处理这种非线性和多平行的宇宙,从而为我的作品提供一种数量维度!我们今天处于中后期状态,主要问题不是媒介本身(你可以使用尽可能多的数量),而是通过发明一种新的游戏规则来处理概念和形式。
我想最重要的是把精力集中在工作和我通过媒体以及他们之间的方式上......

模拟没有道德,偏见或意义。像大自然一样,它只是事实。艺术具有相同的行为,既是现实又是模拟! “

“现实就是当你不再相信它时它不会消失。”菲利普K迪克
