Helen Marten (b. 1985, Macclesfield, UK) studied at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts, London and Ruskin School of Fine Art, University of Oxford (2005-2008). In 2016 she was awarded the Tate Turner Prize. Marten works across sculpture, print, video and writing to create a body of work that through its juxtaposition of high and low, serious and comedic, made and found, questions the stability of the material world and our place within it. Alluding to ideas, systems and experiences, her work across all media sets out to articulate complex ideas about the way in which we exist in and understand the world around us.
