Miguel Martin's new work examines societal attitudes surrounding contemporary mindfulness and its various associations to practices of occultism. The title of the exhibition is adapted from a quote by the 13th century Persian poet and mystic Rumi, who originally wrote, 'be like a tree and let the dead leaves drop', alluding to ideas of letting go and thereby submitting to higher transcendental states of consciousness. Drawing aesthetic influences from minimalism and still life, the tone of the exhibition is softly sinister and includes video, installation and sculptural components. MORE..
