Ferran Martin’s works focus on concepts of memory and temporality, and the transition of personal into historical. The artist continually questions the different ways in which we perceive space and how this perception always involves personal memory. His latest exhibitions including "Granada" (NY, 2011) and “A la altura de mi padre” (NY, 2007) have examined universal ideas about family relationships from a psychological psychiatric study of his own family relationships, particularly with his mother and father, by drawing parallels to historical occurrences and figures.
Working within a creation-destruction process, Martin often destroys art objects at the end of exhibitions to transform and reconsider relationships both material and psychological. Ferran Martin is a Spanish artist living and working in New York. His exhibitions include a current exhibition in Miami at Farside Gallery (through May, 2012), “Granada” (Newman Popiasvhilli Gallery, NY, 2011), “Lingua Franca” (St. Moritz Art Masters, Switzerland, 2011),“Los de Arriba y los de Abajo”, curated by Javier Tellez at the gallery and later at Sala Siqueiros (Mexico City, 2010). In 2009 Raul Zamudio included Martin's work in the Bejing Biennial.
