BERGAMO - GAMEC - KRIS MARTIN
30.05 > 27.07.2008
From May 30 to July 27, 2008 the GAMeC - Galleria d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea of Bergamo will host Inter pares by Kris Martin, as part of the Eldorado-program, a project room at the GAMeC dedicated to the most interesting emerging artists on the international scene.
Martin's work reflects the existential questions that are fed by each human being throughout his existence and frequent references are made to religion, art and literature to express the constant amazement, melancholy and aspiration to knowledge that characterize our relationship with life and death. The variety of means that constitute his art - from sculpture to installations, to the use of sound, text and photography - give rise to works that, on the one hand they possess the aura of a magic object, on the other they betray a feeling of disillusioned irony towards the finiteness of human existence. In Kris Martin's work the heartfelt stupor and the sense of the sacred, in fact, always go hand in hand with the sceptic's melancholy.
