Helen Marten


Garage Museum of Contemporary Art
Age limit — 6+

In 2022, Garage will present the first solo exhibition in Russia of Turner Prize winning artist Helen Marten. The artist will produce new works for the show in Moscow, including drawings, paintings, videos and large, multi-piece sculptures, or spatial assemblages, which will be integrated into the space of the former Seasons of the Year café.

For Garage Atrium, Marten will create a large-scale sculpture, which will alter the familiar look of the Museum’s entrance space.

Helen Marten makes art that questions the stability of the material world and our place in it. Her works allude to ideas, systems, and experiences, articulating complex ideas about the way in which we exist in and understand the world around us.

A catalogue will be published to mark the exhibition. Garage will also publish a Russian translation of Marten’s 2020 novel The Boiled in Between.

Curator: Katya Inozemtseva
