Parker's Box



Born 1969 Besançon, France, lives and works in New York

Since 1990, Patrick Martinez has been exploring different forms of expression such as video art, sound art, drawing, installation and design. Through a wide range of media, he establishes experimental structures to examine ideas about process, action, mobility, adaptation and resistance. His work also studies the relationship between an object and its context of presentation in order to challenge perception.
