Lives and works in Mexico City.

Martin Renteria is a multidisciplinary artist and curator working in performance art, sculpture, painting and installation, including spectacular wearable art and machines of his own design. Being a fashion designer, Renteria’s work is also tactile, textural, and temporal. Stripping the quality of a nightmare collapsing constantly as it takes shape on morphologic creatures, his practice includes primordial rituals in a cyber context. He plays with universal concepts such as space, power, balance, time, uncertainty, human-being essence and the urgency to establish genuine relationships. Concerned with evolution, Renteria’s work analyses present time, from which emanates questions about the soul and the planet’s destination. Martin Renteria is the director and curator of the Mexican performance art network TRANSMUTED, presenting festivals and educational programs in various cities in Mexico and abroad.

At the VENICE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART WEEK, Renteria will present the new performance Erosion – Entropic Action. The performance questions our relation to the surrounding, speaking about the struggle with our everyday conflicts and the quest to bring harmony into our lives.

“MARTIN RENTERIA starts with the body and creates rituals, where actions, objects and atmospheres provoke all kind of interpretations of the same reality. He plays with universal concepts such as space, power, balance, time, uncertainty, human-being essence and the urgency to establish genuine relationships, by means of symbols that cause reactions and reflections in every spectator. Concerned with evolution, Renteria’s work invites us to analyze present time from which emanates questions about the soul and the planet’s destination, and to undertake ways towards higher conscience levels.

He is a multidisciplinary artist who also works in sculpture, painting, installation and performance art – such as spectacular wearable art and machines of his own design. He has created the proper language to expresses his vision of the world.”
