Jonathan Martin


The work of Jonathan Martin (b. 1986, lives and works in Florac) includes films and editions, connected by an interest in the transformative effects of media technologies. His 16 mm films probe the geographies of sensation with sharp, exacting compositions. He is the editor of Turpentine, published since 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
