Jonathan Martin


The work of Jonathan Martin (b. 1986, lives and works in Florac) includes films and editions, connected by his interest in popular music, countercultural traditions, and the transformative potentialities of media technologies. His 16mm films share an focus on sensation and a predilection for austere structures. He is the editor of Turpentine, started in 2013 with Jean-Luc Blanc and Mimosa Echard. – Natasha Northam

Recomposing systems formed of echoes, migrations, tensions and interactions between esthetic and cultural motifs that are at times quite unrelated, Jonathan Martin views art as a poetics of passage where permutations and displacements offer the possibility of a new narrative. – Julien Fronsacq
