BA Fine Art Sculpture, Wimbledon College of Arts, UAL.
Martha Scott works primarily with everyday and mass-produced objects, exploring the materiality they hold.
“Often through intuitive arranging and building, I explore the tensions and tenderness between the domestic and the industrial,” she explains.
Her installation Triple Protection (For the Whole Family), for example, brings together carpet underlay, toothpaste, metal brackets, concrete blocks and other mundane materials.
“These works often allude to traces of human actions and the suggestion of the body, such as the familiar squeeze of a toothpaste tube.”
Degree show: An online exhibition (dates to be confirmed) will take place over the summer. ‘Pending access to buildings and permission to have gatherings’, there will be a physical showcase later in the year. www.arts.ac.uk/
