    Martine Neddam is an artist who uses language as raw material. Since she began as an artist her favorite subjects always were speech acts, modes of address, words in the public space. Since 1988 she has exhibited text objects (banners, plaques, shadows on the wall) in museums and galleries. She has also conceived many large-scale public commissions in several European countries : Netherlands, France, Great Britain. Since 1996, she has created virtual characters who lead an autonomous artistic existence where the actual author remains invisible, among others Mouchette (1996) and David Still (2001) and XiaoQian (2005) and Madja Edelstein-Gomez (2018). In 2013 she began to develop her own software MyDesktopLife, supported by the ZKM | Center for Art and Media (Karlsruhe). Her work has been exhibited at La Biennale de Montréal (2011), Whitechapel Gallery (London, 2016) and the Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam, 2018/2020).
