The form that visual artist MARTY ST. JAME'S work takes is that of a fragmentary or sequential nature resulting via digital video or digital photographic print technology and handmade drawings. The physical practice of movement across time and space and the notion of journey as found to be the components of a live performance are essential elements in his thinking and understanding of form. These notions of working with time, translating movement into non-static forms and vice versa, are a logical progression across his use of media, from live works to single tape videos, video portraits and digital works.
His exhibitions include the National Portrait Gallery, Tate, Pompidou Centre, Museum of Photography (Tokyo), National Centre for Contemporary Art (Moscow), Chelsea Art Museum (New York) Tigre Museum (Buenos Aires) and The Redtory (Beijing). He has undertaken several international residencies, including most recently Antarctica in 2010.
