For UR Feeling, Simon Martin brings together a selection of objects and images from artists and designers including Ettore Sottsass, Scott Burton and Stephen Shore. It is an investigation into affect and the state between knowing and sensing, in relationship to materiality and the built environment. Martin’s collection forms an open ended dialogue around the ideas and influences which form the basis of his artistic research.
Martin’s work reflects upon material culture; he is interested in how we understand ourselves through social structures, mythologies and collective memory evidenced in art objects, mass media, popular culture and the built environment. The exhibition will be punctuated by discussions, performances and film screenings involving writers and artists.
UR Feeling also acts as research for a new film which Martin is developing.
