Margaret Salmon
28.4. – 18.6.2023

Margaret Salmon, Boy (winter), 2022, Videostill

Margaret Salmon creates films, photographs, and sound installations that weave together poetry and nonfiction. Often focusing on individuals in their everyday activities, her work captures the minutiae of daily life and infuses them with gentle grandeur, touching upon universal human themes.


For her exhibition at the Secession, Salmon will develop a set of new films and objects exploring masculinity and stages of male physical and psychological development in Britain. This new site-specific installation reflects a line of research and inquiry that has long defined her feminist practice: the study of gendered dynamics as experienced in everyday life and expressed through the body and culture.


Salmon won the first Max Mara Art Prize for Women in 2006. Her work was shown at the Venice Biennale in 2007, the Berlin Biennale in 2010, and the British Art Show 9 in 2021–22 and was featured in individual exhibitions at Tramway, Glasgow; Witte de With, Rotterdam; and the Whitechapel Gallery, London, among others.
