ABOUT THE WORKS
The ‘Cocoon’ series was created in anticipation of Francesca Martí’s solo exhibition at the prestigious Es Baluard Museum in Palma and mark a period of renewed exploration in the Artist’s practice.
With the merging of video projections and traditional painting the Artist has continued to push the boundaries of conventional disciplines. By adding sound to a static image, moving image onto sculpture or texture underneath video, receptors are triggered and awakened to new experiences.
These three photographs were taken during the live studio performance of ‘Cocoon’ in 2007 and show the protagonist captured in varying states of in-between; falling mid-air, transforming from one state into the other.
Francesca Martí (1957) emerged on the Spanish art scene in the early 1990′s. Trained as painter, Martí’s early work displays the visual language of her generation; bold, postmodern and hybrid. By searching for the limitations of the medium, the Artist refers to a larger human condition; the desire for freedom and transformation.
Martí seeks to distort viewer’s sensory perception by seductively presenting an alternative space, that is inclusive, transformational and ultimately boundary less.
