Event Details

MARRIN LEE MARTINEZ: TOUCHY TOUCHY

Dec 3, 2021–Feb 28, 2022

Soft kinetic sculpture exploring motherhood

The objects on display in this exhibition are a collection of kinetic creatures that explore a mother’s physical sensitivity to their child’s constant touch. Visitors are invited to interact with the forms, as suggested by adjacent action words. This action is a symbolic provoking of “The Mother,” who in turn reacts dramatically, becoming a spectacle for others to witness. Created by artist Marrin Lee Martinez, each work embodies her feelings in Motherhood; an experience that is both chaotic and magical. She references frenetic energy with bright colors – both attractive and mysterious – giving visuals to some of the most complex emotions a parent feels when caring for their child. Do you dare climb, poke, spin, push, or tug? If you do, please be gentle. We wouldn’t want Mom to freak out!
