The series Povera Mobility turns rip-rap blocks used to delimitate and prohibit flows in urban spaces into sculptures on wheels. Matthieu Martin plays with in-betweens, temporal and territorial short circuits. These ones lead to a critical reading of the relation of the individual to its environment, of the signs and systems that build it, creating a disappearance, a displacement or a wandering where a fixed order or a planned mobility would like to stand.
