Martha Poggioli

website

Martha Poggioli (Brisbane, AU) is an artist working to uncover patterns, occurrences and languages hidden within the vast constellation of human made things. Exploiting methodologies and legacies of design, she investigates material histories to address personal questions relating to embodiment, representation and identity. Interested in banal objects, (un)natural bodies and their polymorphic relationships, her work examines how systems of production and cultures of consumption; evolving in tandem, form one another. Poggioli holds a BFA from Queensland University of Technology (Australia) and an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where she has been based since 2017.

Artist Statement

Expanding her ongoing investigation into histories of reproductive technology, Poggioli will partner with the Dittrick Museum of Medical History and Sears think[box] at Case Western Reserve University during her residency in Cleveland. The culminating exhibition at SPACES will combine research findings alongside new sculptural works initiated during her time at the Arts/Industry Residency in Foundry at Kohler during 2020. The project invites audiences to enter into this rich, nuanced and hidden world and discover these prosthetics of interiority.
