Helen Marten




This catalogue is released on the occasion of Helen Marten’s exhibition, Drunk Brown House at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery (29 September – 20 November 2016).

Marten combines disparate imagery and materials to create eclectic, large scale works. These works often serve as repositories for elaborate sculptural tableaux whose assembled detritus (wood, clay, steel, fabric) create a string of hieroglyphs or a kind of archaeological anagram. Her output includes sculpture, videos, text, and screen-printed paintings.

The volume will focus on key artworks produced in recent years, and conceived as an artist book, it will offer detailed perspectives on Marten’s meticulous installations. It will include an essay by Brian Dillon that investigates Marten’s practice, as well as fictional texts by Travis Jeppesen and Eileen Myles that takes inspiration from the artist’s works.

Helen Marten is shortlisted for both the Turner Prize, and the Hepworth Prize for Sculpture in 2016.
