Nadia Martinez

Computer parts compose the sculptures of Nadia Martinez, in which nature and architecture are hidden sources of inspiration. The artificial nature of these components sometimes disappears, leaving space for a composition that reveals an organic shape. Many things are woven in this relationship with technology, as the discovery of the familiar in the unfamiliar, the observation of things that surround us, the awareness of how technology became a solid and integrated part of our lives. In her works, Nadia has found a way to also insert everyday materials, focusing on how things influence the human being and vice-versa. In this unique approach, the construction of the artist becomes an open process in which the things assume different shapes, such as armors, shields, nets, and whatever determines the interchange. The work is calm, offering a balance between stillness and subtle movement. The desire, the action, the research for a path of connection and disconnection, seems to reverberate with the antique mythology in which legend and reality constantly change their roles.
