Martin Soto Climent

Martin Soto Climent (1977, Mexico City) lives and works in Mexico City. In his practice, Soto Climent sources materials and images mainly from city streets or urban suburbs, to create photographs, sculptures and installations that appear to be ready-mades in their humbleness. Reminiscent of conceptual art strategies like appropriation or juxtaposition, his works are the result of slight re-contextualization and delicate rearrangement. Made from vintage clothes, urban leftovers or collaged photographs, Soto Climent’s works appear to be fragile assemblages that explore questions of temporality, desire, decay and marginality. His sculptures often feature temporary interventions into everyday objects that can be easily returned to their original state. Ideas relating to the concept of folds play a crucial role in the artist’s practice as his work is highly adept at drawing out libidinous subtleties of images and objects using minimal gestures.

Together with curator Chris Sharp, Soto Climent founded the independent project space Lulu in Mexico City in 2013 and currently collaborates with blogs and independent initiatives from the international art scene, while preparing his master’s degree on photography at the Academia de San Carlos, UNAM.
