MARTIN ALEXANDRE Martin Alonso: (Madrid, 1992). Graduated from Fine Arts at the Universidad de Madrid in 2015. Studying -since 2014- in the Fine Arts department of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Amsterdam. “When I was born it wasn’t surprising anymore to consider life and art to be intertwined; as the two sides of the same coin. When I was eight years old I made my first artwork. (In church) the priest was taking for granted that as anyone remembers the day he was born… in that moment, I considered to have the right to interrupt the sermon and proof there was a chance of him being mistaken about his assumption. I did remember the day I was born.” Getting into the realm of art -academically- was at the same time a way to benefit from the reigning uncertainty instead of being affected by it, and to still continue on track because you know I’m not brave enough to do my thing independently, I still need to tell what I’m doing with my life, have career plans, pay a rent and go to the supermarket or the bar. I make works based on specific contexts where I insert a camouflaged -thus- unexpected element of disruption in order to derive the flow of events away from their theological composition.
