Gallery Event: Edgar Martins Artist Talk
Edgar will be giving a talk and presentation about his project The Time Machine.
Saturday 28 September, 14.00 – 16.00
Renowned for his unsettling yet strangely familiar images of urban spaces, The Time Machine presents a survey of hydro-electricity generating plants. This exhibition will include a selection of works not yet exhibited in England.
In 2010 and 2011, Martins gained exclusive access to 20 power plants located across Portugal. Many were built between the 1950s and 1970s, a time of hopeful prospects for rapid economic growth and social change throughout the country. Forty years on, these plants are mainly computer operated. No more than half a dozen people, including specialists, cleaning and security staff, now run these plants which, in some cases, were intended to house up to 250 workers just a few decades ago.
