Martin’s practice involves creating 3D remixes of original works, focusing on information relating to heritage, archaeology, Classicism and Art history. For this exhibition, Martin has created a new body of work based on a range of museum and gallery pieces from a number of online archives. The original works are transformed and curated in order to showcase an altered collection.

‘CTRL C’ consists of various 3D outputs that have been reworked from existing material, the recreations allow new meanings to be formed. The artist is attracted by the idea of displaying works outside of formal institutions. Martin has selected a bust of Monsignor Carlo Antonio dal Pozzo, held by National Galleries of Scotland, Edinburgh, as the starting point to her exhibition. A dialogue surrounding the sitter’s nephew, Cassiano dal Pozzo, who commissioned Gian Lorenzo Bernini to carve the portrait, is focused upon. His role as collector and patron to the arts is reflected in Martin’s installation of 3D printed sculptures.

Inspired by a series of Jasper ware busts from the British Museum the artist has also created four large-scaled banners. The banners each contain a 3D rendering of a stone head, from prehistoric Scotland, and an architectural column. The presentation of the sculptural heads puts into question how we value artefacts.

A selection of 3D printed Roman fragments can be found as well. Martin has converted several 2D public domain images to produce the physical objects. In using additive manufacturing, the fragments might seem familiar, but the materiality of the pieces generate a renewed response. The underlying connection throughout the exhibition is not solely of time or place, but rather of the notion of the individual.
