MARTIN MURPHY: Mary’s Room
03.14.2014 – 04.19.2014
Aspect/Ratio is pleased to present Mary’s Room, a new video work from gallery artist Martin Murphy.
Mary’s Room is the first solo Chicago show for Martin Murphy.
With Mary’s Room, Martin Murphy continues his exploration of our relationship to the virtual world. The video depicts a young woman’s subconscious, where classical tropes like fire, ocean and sky mix with contemporary themes of club culture, special effects and pop music.
