Martijn Hendriks is a Dutch artist whose work revolves around the transformation of fragmented narrative structures into sculptural installations and environments, often building these up through disparate elements that eventually come together in a larger plan over the course of years. His current long term project, called Compound, centres on the planning and construction of a self-sufficient and autarchic settlement and uses the studio as a tool for this.
