Artist Kris Martin “EXIT”

Belgian artist Kris Martin has been exploring the uncertainty of the human condition, the passing of time, and our relationship with ideas of faith for twenty years now.

With numerous exhibitions at international museums under his belt, so his first retrospective in his native Belgium at S.M.A.K. in Ghent is long overdue.

Playfully titled “EXIT”, the exhibition showcases Martin’s penchant for wittily re-contextualizing familiar objects with an almost childlike simplicity to produce new meanings as well as his talent for weaving art history, literature and myths into his work.
