Jennifer Martin

Jennifer Martin (b. 1990) is a London-based fine artist working with moving image, photography, installation and text. Her work operates in part as interventions and articulations of social-racial dynamics and lived experiences.

A driving question of Martin’s recent work involves the role of art and media in the social and psychological construction of race and citizenship and its intersection with agency, nostalgia, and identification. In working with performers for moving image she employs a methodology of improvisation, and negotiation of narrative in unpacking character, language and context.

Martin is a graduate of the Royal College of Art (2018) and the Slade School of Fine Art, University College London (2013). She was awarded the Stuart Croft Foundation Education Award 2018, is artist-in-residence at Kingsgate Workshops 2019/20, and part of the FLAMIN Fellowship 2019.

Titled And Image Doubled, the piece is a moving image work that will examine “the performative nature of immigration” set within the universe of a reality dating series.
