Liljana Mead Martin is a visual artist based in Vancouver, British Columbia, working primarily in sculpture. Her work explores themes of deep time, cultivation and evolution to highlight speculative adaptations within dark ecologies and toxic habitats.

In recent work Martin considers the reciprocity between bodies and land, creating sculptures which depict speculative lifeforms emerging from devastated environmental conditions – conditions increasingly transitioning from science fiction into shared reality. 

Martin’s work has been exhibited at The Klondike Institute for Arts and Culture (Dawson City Yukon Territory), Artscape Gibraltar Point (Toronto Island ON), CSA Space (Vancouver), Nanaimo Art Gallery (Vancouver Island), Wil Aballe Art Projects (Vancouver), Zalucky Contemporary (Toronto), NADA House Governor’s Island (NYC), and BIOMASS (worldwide).
