In the exhibition Total Noise, Mårtenson has been inspired by our contemporary and technological society and how it affects us. Social media like Instagram, Facebook, Google and other internet platforms, store and use the information that we provide them with by our user behavior. The information is then collected by AI run systems combining search patterns to modify our behavior.
With sharp irony and criticism Mårtenson creates a visual analysis of our social infrastructure, that makes us question our own digital behavior and utilization.
Mårtenson (b. 1972) lives and works in Stockholm. His works have been shown in solo exhibitions in Scandinavia as well as in group shows in the US, Japan, Finland and Sweden. This is Mårtenson's first exhibition at Galerie Forsblom in Stockholm.
