Martin Boyce was born in 1967 in Glasgow, Scotland, where he continues to live and work. Primarily using sculpture, Boyce engages with the historical legacy of Modernist forms and ideals, assembling paired-down visual elements in order to conjure up the sight of larger environments. His work is endowed with a romantic and melancholic vision of nature, which extends to the city’s built environment. His installations often stage the outside within the gallery space, evoking an entire landscape through a few carefully chosen details, supported by the artist’s singular attention to materials, which include neon lights, wire fencing and ventilation grills. His pieces also reference key element from the Modernist era, such as iconic furniture design and the grid, originally meant to evacuate narrative in favor of utopian and democratic structures. Boyce stages these cultural forms in a literal fashion within his works as a means of exploring their changing social significance over time.

Martin Boyce recently represented Scotland at the 53rd Venice Biennale (2009) and had solo exhibitions and projects at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago (2010), MIT - Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge (2010), Galerie Eva Presenhuber, Zurich (2010), the SculptureCenter, Long Island City, New York (2008). His work has also been shown in numerous museum exhibitions and international events including the 4th Auckland Triennial, Auckland (2010), “ART TLV: The First City-Wide International Contemparay Art Exhibition in Tel Aviv”, Tel Aviv (2008), “Unmonumental: The Object in the 21st Century” at The New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York (2007), Skulptur Projekte Münster 07 (2007), the 7th Shanghai Biennial (2006) and the 9th Lyon Biennial (2004).
