  • Mark Leckey

The first Norwegian showing of Turner prize-winning artist Mark Leckey’s new autobiographical film, drawing on British popular culture from the past 40 years.

Mark Leckey’s wide-ranging and multi-disciplinary practice combines sculpture, film, sound and performance. His witty and sensual films often take as their subject under-represented and overlooked aspects of British popular culture to explore ideas about personal history, desire and transformation. It started with a piece of found bootleg documentation of a Joy Division gig that Leckey attended in 1979 and the realisation that many of our personal memories and experiences can now be found online. From there, Dream English Kid 1964-1999 AD attempts to create a record of all the significant events in Leckey’s life during the late 20th Century through found traces of film, adverts and popular music.

Presented in collaboration with Cabinet, London.
A Mark Leckey film in association with Film London Artists’ Moving Image Network and Arts Council England.
