Art e-Facts 36

Martin Boyce came to prominence during the 1990s and is one of Scotland’s most internationally acclaimed artists. His work takes inspiration from the collapse of utopian ideals that once surrounded mid-century modernism and modernist design. In past works, Boyce has re-situated iconic modernist furniture in anti-heroic postures, and in Double Black Disaster (1999), an Eames chair is put to work as a door jam.

Boyces’ work can currently be seen at The Modern Instutute in Glasgow until March 30th and later this year in Sculpture-Projects, Munster 07.
