Martijn Hendriks is a Dutch artist whose work revolves around the transformation of fragmented cultural narratives into sculptural installations, often building these up through disparate elements that eventually come together in a larger plan over the course of years. His current long term and evolving project, Years of self-reliance, explores the sculptural and political potential of radical DIY attitudes.
