Martha Poggioli is an Australian born interdisciplinary artist based in the United States. Her practice explores the consequences of overlooked systems and objects in relationship to the body; both functionally and formal. Straddling sculpture and design mediums, her work evolves through interrogating media and object archives to represent an otherwise hidden world of things.
Poggioli holds an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a BFA from Queensland University of Technology. Poggioli is the recipient of the John Michael Kohler Arts/Industry residency (2020), LeRoy Neiman Foundation Ox-Bow Fellowship (2019), the New Arts Society Merit Scholarship (School of the Art Institute of Chicago, 2017-19) and the Career Development Grant from the Australia Council for the Arts (2017). She has exhibited work at LVL3 (Chicago), Extase (Chicago), Space p11 (Chicago), C3 Contemporary Art Space Gallery (Melbourne), RMIT Design Hub (Melbourne) and Kunstgewerbemuseum (Dresden, Germany).
