About the work
Fabian Marti
Swiss, b. 1979
Follow

With post-minimal verve and conceptual flair, Fabian Marti creates sculptural and wall works through which he explores ideas about artistic production and identity. Marti’s work extends from a reconsideration of the role of the artist as a brand and producer of goods and services for clients such as collectors, institutions, and viewers. He often includes recurring motifs, such as Op art-like black-and-white patterns and handprints, and embraces mechanical processes that include signature traces of the artist’s hand at work: photograms, ceramics, installations, and prints. Marti sees his work as aiming to break free of mechanical social and technological conceits. “To work in a more direct way, with my hands, I see it as a very archaic thing: creating something out of earth,” he says. Marti was featured in the 54th Venice Biennale.
