Biography

Daria Martin (born 1973) is a contemporary American artist and filmmaker based in London and San Francisco since 2002. Working primarily in 16mm film, her work has been exhibited in twenty four solo shows in public galleries including at the Barbican, the Hammer Museum, The New Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, the Stedelijk Museum and Australian Centre for Contemporary Art. Martin's films address the space between disparate states of being – levels of consciousness, internal and social worlds; subject and object – working to unravel viewer's learned habits of perception. Martin's films also often explore the differences and similarities between other artistic mediums including painting, performance, dance, and sculpture. Some subjects Martin's work touches on include dreams, feminism, inherited trauma, artificial intelligence, and mirror-touch synesthesia.
