Oriol Vilanova


Oriol Vilanova (Manresa 1980, lives and works in Brussels). Vilanova is interested in the paradoxes inherent in mass culture, an obsession that has prompted him to collect a whole range of postcards he finds at second-hand markets. His artistic approach is finally conceptual through minimalist and architectural installations, performances and writings, based on repetition and exaggeration.
