Valerio Conti is a visual artist, architect and musician who lives and works in Den Haag (NL) .
By adopting a polyphony of media, Valerio studies the body and its representation outside the normative canon. His works investigate the boundaries between proximity and distance in the contact between bodies, through processes of subtraction and reformulation. In his works, the public and private spheres often dissolve to give life to a shared intimacy. His research approach is material and tactile, conceiving images as bodies from know, dissect, magnify, touch and hurt.
