The work of Israel Martínez (Mexico 1979) has been characterized by reflecting about several social topics through sound, music and their relation to image. He has produced video installations, site-specific projects, actions, interventions and graphic works through the use of photography, typing, photocopying and other media. He has also made multi-channel sound installations and composed a music between electroacoustic and spatiality.

Since 2000 he has taken part in events from several artistic territories, especially in America and Europe. In 2007 he accomplished a Distinction Award of Prix Ars Electronica. In 2012 he was resident at the DAAD’s Artists-in-Berlin Program, and at Vienna's MuseumsQuartier in 2014. Some of his works have been acquired by two of the most important collections in Latin America: Jumex and MUAC/UNAM. His aural work is published and distributed worldwide by labels such as Sub Rosa, Aagoo and Abolipop.

Projektinfo

As part of the series People behaving as real animals (video-sound installations) I will make improvisation sessions with guests, sometimes solo actions, but also duos or group improvisations, with the objective of exploring the communication beyond language. These sessions will produce material for next installations of the series.

Dokumentation

Due to the current political crisis in Mexico and specially the killing of forty-three students by an alliance between the government of the state of Guerrero and a drug “cartel”, at the end of September 2014, my residence period at quartier21 was very critical and reflexive. I participated in the PCFS Post-Colonial Flagship Store exhibition with a work related to these political problems around Mexico, so it was a great time to share information with a long audience attending the exhibition.

I have to say that this month in the residence was great to get inspiration not only by all the activities in MuseumsQuartier but Vienna in general, attending seminars about politics and art, exhibitions, fairs, concerts and another events, besides meeting several artists from around the globe and getting feedback from my mates in residence.

About my production, I made an action for video and sound in collaboration with Mexican student and activist Gerardo Montes de Oca, it took place in Mexicoplatz and is currently in exhibition as an audiovisual installation at talcual gallery in Mexico City (November 2014 – January 2015). I was also recording street musicians on video and sound, as part of a series of works focused on these modern minstrels that I’m producing in several cities. Finally, I started to write a text for an audio installation in process.
