Martín La Roche Contreras

The following analysis is intended to give a general idea of the contents of the museum in a classified form. It is based on catalogues in WEB and many of the figures are provisional. It must be emphasised that such an analysis bears no relation to the user’s attitude to this collection which is personal and empirical, little concerned with chronological classification and still less with balanced representation. It is thought, however, that this summary may be a useful guide to the present reader in search of specific material.

Martín La Roche Contreras

Born in Santiago Chile (1988), is a visual artist who lives in Amsterdam. He studied Visual Arts at the University of Chile and completed a postgraduate program at the Jan Van Eyck Academie in Maastricht, the Netherlands. His works often find their starting points from existing collections of objects and memories, archives as modes of storytelling which he reassembles into installations, performances or publications. The Mondriaan Fonds supports his practice with a grant for the next four years (2021-2024).
