EDGAR MARTINS FALL NEWS:

 


I'M STILL HERE AT THE SOUTH BANK CENTRE, LONDON 
 –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
 
Southbank Centre
Belvedere Road
London 
SE1 8XX


19 SEPT - 04 NOV 2018
 

I'm Still Here is an exhibition organised by The Koestler Trust of art by ex-offenders, secure patients and detainees curated by prisoner's families and includes especially produced works by Edgar Martins, following his recent series What Photography has in Common with an Empty - a project developed with GRAIN Projects, HMP Birmingham and its inmates and families.
In 2016 GRAIN Projects commissioned artist Edgar Martins to respond to Winson Green in Birmingham and the site and community of HM Prison Birmingham. Martins is creating a significant, multifaceted body of work developed from a collaboration with the prisoners and their families, as well as a myriad of other local organisations and individuals. Using the social context of incarceration as a starting point, Martins’ work explores the philosophical concept of absence, and addresses a broader consideration of the status of the photograph when questions of visibility, ethics, aesthetics and documentation intersect.
The works Martins presents in I’m Still Here are directly inspired and informed by his personal project, but were specially produced for this context at the invitation of the Koestler Trust. The artist was asked to engage and respond to the experiences of the five families that curated this year's exhibition.
A book of this work will be published by The Moth House in March 2019.
