Currently in residency at the Villa Medici – French Academy in Rome in 2018-2019, Léonard Martin builds bridges between eras and forms. His pieces address big themes of art and literature, employing the various languages of imagery and representation in space. For the Biennale, Martin proposes a playful dialogue between art-history references and popular means of expression, orchestrating a sculptural encounter between the Italian Renaissance of Paolo Uccello, puppet theatre and Carnival games.
