Passion for Words: Dominic Williams in conversation with Martin Holm and Milica Denković "Hidden Words"
Dominic Williams, Martin Holm, Milica Denkovic
Flavour your lunch break with literary voices. Pause the clatter of the daily grind to listen to one of the writers from an international cohort of festival artists describe what excites them and drives them in their creative practice.
Holm and Denković are two accomplished visual artists working with both traditional and digital media. Beyond the image they both have a love of text. How do they share those hidden words how does this hidden passion for words manifest itself?
Martin Holm (b.1985 in Köping, SWE) is a visual artist. He did his BFA at Cambridge School of Art, Anglia Ruskin University, UK (2008), and received his Master’s Degree in Fine Art from Valand Academy, Gothenburg University, Sweden (2014). Currently on a break from his nomadic, travelling-artist life, he is back and based in Gothenburg.
Holm’s artistic practice is probably best described as a studio-based investigation into the correlation of pop-culture (literature, cinema, music~), history and philosophy. While his movement forward is firmly grounded in painting, recurring elements in his works include collage, assemblage and recycling, all used in both material ways and on an idea-based level. Through his works he explores paths into alternative spaces, places where events are not necessarily bound by time, the laws of physics, geometric perspectives or social constructions. The studio production is an attempt, by all available means, at coming to terms with the chaos of the contemporary.
