Post Works | Daria Martin exhibitionPost Works is a collaboration between Melissa Appleton and Matthew Butcher. Their work combines built structures and environments, with performances and film and they collaborate with other artists, choreographers and filmmakers. Their latest project is an environment to house a series of films by artist Daria Martin for her survey exhibition at MK Gallery (20 January – 8 April 2012).

Post Works | Daria Martin exhibitionMartin’s show presents a selection of short 16mm films made over the last 10 years, including the premier of an ambitious new work, Sensorium Tests, which revolves around a recently recognised neurological condition called ‘mirror-touch synaesthesia’.  Other works include Closeup Gallery (2003), in which a magician and his assistant engage in a strange game where cards dance; Soft Materials (2004) where intimate relationships between man and machine are nurtured in an artificial intelligence laboratory; and Harpstrings and Lava (2007) a dark narrative that animates dream images through clashing textures and structures.

Post Works | Daria Martin exhibitionTwo kinds of environments have been designed for experiencing the film works. For MK Gallery’s two smaller rooms, more traditional viewing environments were designed to reflect the hermetic laboratory settings of the works being shown there. In the larger gallery space, a dynamic environment allows visitors free movement between a series of projection rooms, which Post Works describe as “a space that deconstructs the traditional viewing environment and acts as a fragmented but continuous element, supporting multiple and diverse viewing experiences of the works.”
