Artist`s biography
 Valéry Grancher
Born in 1967, Valéry Grancher is a French artist,
theorist, curator and lecturer, living and working in
Hong Kong.
He first became well know in the mid-1990s for his
‘Google paintings’ but his artistic practice is vast
and covers internet art, video, photography,
painting and installation.
Valéry Grancher is an explorer. His curiosity leads
him to investigate all kinds of territories such as
the intimacy of AIDS patients, orbital space
stations, the daily life of a Jivaro tribe in Amazonia,
or the North Pole.
Last year, 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).
Valéry Grancher has exhibited and given
performances in institutions worldwide, and his
work is in numerous private and public collections.
