Martin John Callanan's work expresses how technological, political, economic, environmental, and other systems, can be made tangible to the individual and in an accessible way. This has provoked debates about the calculated romance of a hi-tech world that is driven by big-data. His work has been published and exhibited on an international scale, and last year, the artist was awarded the prestigious triennial Philip Leverhulme Prize in Visual Art. Solo exhibitions include Noshowspace, London, Horrach Moya, Palma and Or Gallery, Berlin. His work has also been shown at White Cube, James Cohan Gallery, Whitechapel Gallery, International Film Festival Rotterdam, Whitstable Biennale, and Imperial War Museum. As of late, Callanan is a member of SCEMFA, a research group about electronic media at the Slade School of Fine Art, and holds the position of a teaching fellow at the University College London.
