British artist Simon Martin's new exhibition "UR Feeling" opens at Camden Arts Centre
Untitled (Atilla) 2012 Silver gelatin print.

LONDON.- British artist Simon Martin’s new exhibition UR Feeling investigates the state between knowing and sensing, particularly in relation to the built environment. He has set up a platform to discuss this idea, bringing into the gallery works by artists and designers including Richard Artschwager, Stephen Shore and Ettore Sottsass. UR Feeling is research for a new film which Martin developed, and is punctuated by discussions, performances and film screenings to further elucidate his ideas. The exhibition looks at how the combination of architectural form with attention to the history of a site can bring about a particular affect on the viewer, and reflects on the complexity of impression, appearance and effect when encountering something unfamiliar. The exhibition is punctuated by discussions, performances and film screenings involving writers and artists. Simon Martin: UR Feeling opened at Camden Arts Centre on 28 September 2012 and admission is free.

Working with video and sculpture, Martin records his findings by questioning ideas of value associated to historical objects and artefacts. To date his film works have included Carlton, 2006 a filmic meditation on the Carlton cabinet, a piece of furniture designed by Ettore Sottsass in 1981. More recently Louis Ghost Chair, reflects upon the classic design of the Louis XV armchair, its enduring cachet and significance and considers the object’s contemporary afterlife in the form of Philippe Starck’s tribute/update ‘Louis Ghost Chair’.

Simon Martin (b.1965) graduated from the Slade School of Fine Art in 1989. He has had a number of solo exhibitions both internationally and in the UK: at Kunstverein, Amsterdam (2010), Chisenhale Gallery, London (2008), The Power Plant Toronto (2006), White Columns, New York (2005), Counter Gallery, London (2005).
