Martha Atienza (b. 1981, Manila, Philippines) lives and works in Bantayan Island, Philippines. She has moved between the Netherlands and the Philippines throughout her life. Constantly oscillating between these two cultures has had a profound influence on her focus as an artist. Her practice explores installation and video as a way of documenting and questioning issues around environment, community and development. Atienza’s selected solo exhibitions include Our Islands, Art Basel Statements, Basel, Switzerland (2017); Mind Set Art Center, Taipei, Taiwan (2017); Equation of State, Silverlens, Manila, Philippines (2019) and Free Jazz IV – Geomancers, Singapore Art Week, Singapore (2022).
