Screening by Daria Martin

Apr 27, 2012



Grand Luxe Hall, Western Front


Since the early 2000s, Daria Martin has produced a significant body of work which brings together her longstanding interest in the intersection between historical modes of avant-garde dance, performance, sculpture, and theatre, with the absorptive and experimental capacity of 16mm film.

On the occasion of Martin’s work being featured in the group exhibition People Thing Enter Exit at Catriona Jeffries, Western Front presented a selection of Martin’s films in the Grand Luxe Hall.
