Please join us on the 13th February 2013 for the private-view of This is not a House, at The Gallery of Photography, Dublin (Meeting House Square, Temple Bar, Dublin 2, Ireland).
Supported by The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (Uk Branch), the Instituto Camões (Lisbon) and The Arts Council England, Martins’ celebrated and controversial series, will kick off its European tour at the Gallery of Photography in early 2013.
Shot in sixteen different locations, across eight separate states, this work catalyses and reunites fresh experiences of a new form of American architecture by summoning a disquieting conjunction of realism and fiction.
In a study that goes beyond pure formal investigation and documentation Martins creates a poignant commentary on the financial ruin and bankruptcy that struck the lives of many thousands of people.
