Artist Jed Martin emerges from a ten-year hiatus with good news. It has nothing to do with his broken boiler, the approach of another lamentably awkward Christmas dinner with his father or the memory of his doomed love affair. It is that, for his new exhibition, he has secured the involvement of the celebrated novelist Michel Houellebecq.
