Lives and works in Mexico
Martin Renteria is a
multidisciplinary artist and curator working in performance art, sculpture,
painting and installation, including spectacular wearable art and machines of
his own design. Being a fashion designer, Renteria’s work is also tactile,
textural, and temporal. Stripping the quality of a nightmare collapsing
constantly as it takes shape on morphologic creatures, his practice includes
primordial rituals in a cyber context. He plays with universal concepts such as
space, power, balance, time, uncertainty, human-being essence and the urgency
to establish genuine relationships. Concerned with evolution, Renteria’s work
analyses present time, from which emanates questions about the soul and the
planet’s destination. Martin Renteria is the director and curator of the Mexican
performance art network TRANSMUTED, presenting festivals and educational
programs in various cities in Mexico and abroad.
At the VENICE INTERNATIONAL
PERFORMANCE ART WEEK, Renteria will present the new performance Erosion - Entropic Action. The performance
questions our relation to the surrounding, speaking about the struggle with our
everyday conflicts and the quest to bring harmony into our lives.
