Nayra Martín Reyes is a Tenerifian artist. She lives and works in Ghent and Tenerife (ES). For the duo exhibiton UNS- TABLE she’ll be presenting new work.
Nayra Martín Monumento en vi-vo: Uns- table seems to confront us with a public secret. Using herself as the activator, the presence and body of the artist allures us in a performatieve work inspired by the ill set of values that our capitalistic societies are built upon: greed, wealth, posession and power perpretated by the well-off born, self-importance and fashion.
Within the work frame of the artist, one can see this performance as a new reflection on the duality monumentality-power. Nayra’s monuments are usually in a state of decay, breaking down or have been transmogrified. In this case, the work is physically perilous -unattached chairs on top of a table with the artist sitting at the top of it all-. The artist must constantly keep her balance while interacting with her props. However, she seems to be wounded. What does this mean? Are the ones at the top of the pyramid injured (hopefully death-injured and about to fall forever)? Or is that the insane lust for ‘having’ that the powers that be implant in us hurts us as human beings and ills our societies?
Steven Messiaen is a Belgian Artist. He lives and works in Ghent. During July and Augustus, Steven Messiaen and Dany Deprez are inviting enthusiastic makers which working fields has a focus on video, film, performance, prints, installation, sound and cross-over media.
