Brief info

f. 1988

Visual artist Isabelle Martin holds a BA(hons) in Fine Art Sculpture from Brighton University (2010) and an MFA from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (2019).

Her practice reflects on the friction between the world and the body through a focus on embodied and scientific knowledge. An interest in the manipulation of spatial and temporal scales in science informs her work, with a focus on the tensions and relations between the meteorological, geological and biological.

Her work is context specific; driven by interdisciplinary collaboration with the sciences, experimental play and in-depth research. She moves between mediums: using sculpture, drawing, performance, film and sound to challenge and play with the systems informing our understanding of the world.

Recent projects include ‘Keeping Time’ for Sculpture in the City, London, ‘The Long Wait’ for Udden Skulpturpark, Sweden, and ‘The Burning’ screened at crosscuts Film Festival, Stockholm. Recent film ‘Time Animals’ featured in the exhibition The World is in You at Charlottenborg Castle, 2021.
