Valentin Carron's sculptures mark a three-dimensional renewal of appropriationism, through the re-employment of vernacular forms that are neither authentic nor kitsch. His objects play with the ambiguities of fake wood, concrete and bronze, and with the iconography of power and authority in public sculptures or commemorative monuments. This volume offers an overview.
