A.M. Martens
January 12 - February 9, 2018  

Opening Reception
January 12, 2018
5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.

The Jane Hartsook Gallery is pleased to present new work by A.M Martens. Martens uses everyday objects and spaces to reveal the inner structures that shape our individual points of view. In this installation, she uses imagery and personal recollections from exploring construction sites with her family as a child to consider the way experiences and relationships shape us and the way memory can be a window into our subjectivity.   

In the wall-mounted works, Martens invites us to think about how our recollections, however factually incorrect, can illustrate personal truths. These slabs are fractured re-creations of a photograph of Martens and her sister at the construction site of their family home. The image captured a moment Martens did not know she had misremembered until re-discovering the photograph years later. Martens expands on this idea in her installation of wooden beams and porcelain nails. Struck by the novelty of being able to move through unfinished walls when she explored building sites as a child, Martens has reimagined these internal spaces as a liminal place between events and our internalization of them. Read more. 

Martens will present an Artist Talk about her work Friday, February 9, 3:00 - 4:00 p.m. This event is free and open to the public. Seats are limited. Please RSVP here.
