Kris Martin was born in 1972 and is based in Ghent, Belgium. Kris Martin's ephemeral interventions and his diverse use of found materials - from antique relics to natural or highly engineered objects - create a space of uncertainty and existential questioning. Often humorous and playful despite a profound sense of spiritual and philosophical enquiry, his work is as likely to provoke a state of mind as it is to create a visual experience. Martin presents two works in Sculpture in the City, both found objects lifted from a religious context: Bells II, and Altar. With the repositioning of these two highly charged, spiritually symbolic objects, Martin asks us to seek new value and meaning from our everyday urban experience.
