B+Animation: Paul Valentin
In “A Piano Plays In Another Room And It’s Raining” (2022), Paul Valentin takes us into a melancholic fugue of computer-generated spaces that overwhelm us with their abundance of references to film, painting and computer games as well as the carefully designed “digital objects” and initially leave us speechless.
and initially leave us speechless. The aesthetics of this work, which oscillates between cinematic philosophy and spatial installation, refers to the design of so-called “liminal” spaces – transit spaces – which evoke feelings of eeriness, nostalgia and anxiety in us.
nostalgia and anxiety. Each scene demands that we adopt different perspectives, jump between worlds and “realities”, abandon projections and allow for new possibilities. Ultimately, we understand that here we are seeing our seeing itself, contemplating the making of meaning and pursuing the philosophical search for the nature of the world.
