Tirzo Martha

Tirzo Martha’s work takes its origin in his humanitarian and social commitment. His need and urgency to create more social and human conditions in the societies brought him to his body of work. Like an anthropologist he investigates the conditions in which people live but he also applies his findings, found together with the people, into possible solutions that he then execute together with them. His work may appear as a composition of found objects with a load of symbolism but on the contrary the objects are carefully sought after, chosen and are the purest reflections of the existence of the people. The composition of these objects not only reflects the daily lives and habits of the people but it also gives an insight in their daily hopes, ambitions, dreams, disappointments and moments of glory.
