Marta Fernández Calvo

Marta is a visual artist and researcher based in Madrid. In her work Marta speculates on the re-wording of built environments through a variety of collaborative methods specific to each situation, including those outside of architectural and artistic traditions. This engagement and the processes that stem from it translate into ephemeral interventions in galleries, public and domestic contexts. These interventions are at once socially engaged and participatory. She has exhibited at No Soul for Sale Tate Modern (London), Utopia Station 53rd Venice Biennale and To want to seem night Ca2m (Madrid). In 2019 she was resident at Delfina Foundation (London) as part of the Politics of Food program, where she developed the performance Food Chorus presented at the Victoria & Albert Museum and at the Centro Cultural de España in Mexico.
