Tate Britain is working with Turner Prize winning artist Mark Leckey on a major exhibition of his work

Since he came to prominence in the late 1990s, Mark Leckey’s practice has addressed the radical effect of technology on popular culture and has powerfully articulated the transition from analogue to digital culture.

His work is often concerned with under-represented or overlooked aspects of British culture and explores ideas about both collective and personal history. For example, the film Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore 1999 uses sampled footage to trace dance subcultures in British nightclubs from the 1970s to 90s, while Dream English Kid, 1964–1999 AD 2015 focuses on key episodes in his own life, constructed from ‘found memories’ sourced primarily from the internet.
