Marcus Farr (United States) Residency: May to June 2018
Marcus Farr is a Fulbright Scholar and leader Material Artifact, a studio interested in matters of material reference & assemblage. We look at concepts of natural histories and the invisible forces of nature, weather & age as processes for creating physical objects and sensory experiences. Our work seeks to introduce the mundane, the heightened and the potential of materials relative to our everyday interactions. We work wherever there is suitable commission to explore these roles through artistic or architectural medium. Vernacular patterns and templates for creating artifacts of cultural value are common themes throughout the work of the studio.
