“There’s something very still and frozen about the sculptural pieces that I make, and I quite like the idea that you’re stepping into a frozen moment”, dixit Martin Boyce in DAMNº52. A Scottish sculptor inspired by early 20th century modernism, Martin Boyce makes sculptures, photographs, and installations that examine the intersections between art, architecture, design, and nature, creating works that fall betwixt or overlap the various categories. Collapsing distinctions between past, present, and future, each of Boyce’s works seems to exist in an autonomous world, detached from any fixed time or place. His current exhibitions at the RISD Museum and at Galerie Eva Presenhuber, are about conveying a suspension of time.
