Isabella Martin is a visual artist whose practice explores how we fit in the world, how we shape and are shaped by our surroundings.

Her work is context specific; driven by interdisciplinary collaboration, experimental play and in-depth research.

Works move across mediums: using sculpture, drawing, performance, participation, film and sound to challenge and play with the systems informing our understanding of the world.

Her ongoing research focuses on ideas of measurement, navigation and time in relation to place and the body, through work with an expanding group of collaborators including geologists, physicists, biologistssailors and schoolchildren.

Isabella is a co-founder of research and curatorial collective Camp Little Hope and a member of art and game design collective Kosmologym.

Isabella holds a BA(hons) in Fine Art Sculpture from Brighton University and an MFA from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts with a Minor in Art, Writing and Research.
