Martin Soto Climent was born in 1977 in Mexico. He lives and works in Mexico City. He is represented by T293 gallery in Rome and Clifton Benevento in New York.

Many of Soto Climent’s works feature everyday items or articles of clothing found on the street or in second-hand shops. He then arranges these objects, unaltered or with minimal modifications, in new configurations as sculptures or installations that resemble the descendants of Surrealist works such as Meret Oppenheim’s 1936 My Nurse or Man Ray’s 1921 Cadeau.
