The Animalmineralvegetal Man (2020) series consists of ten small sculptures strategically posing as decorative porcelain figurines. On closer look, however, these figurines are nothing like the well-known innocent collectibles. They’ve devoured all familiar references and turned into supranormal mutants: they’re animal, man, mineral and plant all-in-one; a reflection on our contemporary point of view on physical mutation. The title of the series refers to the shape-shifting superhero mutants known from comic books: modern-day substitutes for classical mythological heroes: creatures with powers exceeding ours. In Marty’s mutants however, all biological kingdoms have converged into restless creatures looking for a physical state “superior” to that of mere superhumans: über-organisms if you will. Or are these the results of an excessively dominated and therefore confused nature? They go above and beyond what we know from classical myths. Perhaps the imagination of the past doesn’t suffice anymore in times where surpassing the natural limits of human nature through genetic modifications is becoming increasingly realistic, turning the fantastical into the ordinary.
