Artist Interview



Desire and transformation are key motifs in Mark Leckey’s work, returning repeatedly in a variety of manifestations. His own state of being – an artist in London, a participant in contemporary culture, and a man who grew up in the 1980s in the north of England – is used as a construct through which he can investigate these forces. His wide-ranging and multi-disciplinary practice combines sculpture, film, sound and performance. He celebrates the imagination of the individual, and our potential to inhabit, reclaim or animate an idea, a space, or an object.
