bio ENG: Martin Levêque was born in France in 1987. He lives and works in Mexico City. After studying communication and seven years of experience in entrepreneurship as an art director, he began to create visual works in an autodidact way.
His work explores our relationship with objects and space. Through his installations, sculptures, photographs and silkscreen printing, Levêque tries to spread confusion among the visitors by offering a moment that breaks the barriers imposed by our daily life. His work is an utopian quest that transforms the impossible into reality. His colour blindness is at the origin of his fascination for illusion.
Levêque defies the traditional tools of analogue art and carefully chooses his materials and intends to give them a second life. The matter properties are a universal and inexhaustible source of inspiration. In a dizzying era of constant and rapid changes, the tangible holds a strong and positive message, that of immutable truth. Levêque is undeniably moved by the evolution of knowledge, and especially by its obsolescence that our generation is testifying.
descrizione ENG : Lunaris a light and color installation born during a night walkin Mexico City. There, thousands of food kiosks made of stainless steel unconsciously play with the urban lights. In the obscurity, the stalls look fascinating and terrifying at the same time, the patrols, car headlights, and signs are trapped in their bosom, they reﬂect and marry the slightest relief and interpret an ephemeral ballet that will never be reproduced with the same choreography.
