About

Sorcha Dallas is pleased to announce the first solo exhibition in the gallery by the Mexican artist Martin Soto Climent, ‘A Long Chapter One'. This exhibition signals the beginning of a major project for the artist, to be staged across a series of international venues until 2011. As a result these individual projects become fragmented across time and place and work as chapters, arranged from beginning to end. Soto Climent uses basic materials, often personal mementos or discarded found objects, which he tenuously combines into poetic set ups. Objects are often effortlessly placed together with the tension of their own weight being the only structural support. A Venetian blind is folded and propped, transformed into an abstracted bird; a pair of high heels are attached to a discarded plastic bag, metamorphosised into a parachute. Despite their apparent simplicity the resulting sculptures are loaded with symbolic and poetic significance. Martin Soto Climent was born in Mexico City in 1977. Recent solo shows include ‘Laberintome', T293, Naples; ‘Impulsive Chorus', X initiative, New York; ‘The Intimate Revolt', Karma International Zurich; ‘For Your Eyes Only', La Sala, Mexico City, all 2009 and a Solo Position at Art Basel Miami Beach in 2008. Recent group shows include ‘Between Space', P.S.1, New York; ‘Ordinary Revolutions', Museum Morsbroich, Leverkusen and ‘Nudes', Fortes Vilacla Gallery, San Paulo, Brazil. Soto Climent lives and works in Mexico City. Please contact the gallery for further information.
