You’ll Wait for Me, I’ll Wait for You, 2008
Performance and installation at ART LOT, Brooklyn, NY
Martinez’s work, You’ll Wait for Me, I’ll Wait for You, uses two sets of balloons, tied to the ground by a 10-foot-long string that playfully reflects the gentle wind coming off the water a block away. Blowing in tandem here and there, the piece combines a minimalist quality with a childlike sensitivity to color and movement that suggests the unity of pairings.
