Martin Cody

BA (Hons) in Sculpture

Former John Moores Fellow in Sculpture at Liverpool College of Art.

 

I make constructed sculpture that is material and tangible; that creates a presence in a space.  A single component is usually a kind of pivot for repetition of that component, or it serves as the epicentre of interrelating forms and materials.  I prefer the relationship between different qualities of materials and substances rather than working with one material or process.  However, I often find I am very ambivalent about making pieces in this way and I sometimes produce work which runs in a counter direction in order to explore this scepticism.  For these projects, I use other media and activities.

"To be Revealed" 2017

 

"To Be Revealed reflects my ambivalence about trying to make from physical materials, something that counts as art.  It is an act of slapstick - cutting up and subsequent collapse of boards and trestles - accumulating debris which might remain as such or reintegrate into something recognised as art."
