About Mark Leckey
Ever since the late 1990s Mark Leckey has been a prominent figure on the international contemporary art scene. He first shot to fame with his 1999 video work Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore, a celebration of British dance culture, and in recent years Leckey has reaffirmed his position with an exhibition cycle at the prominent venues of WEILS in Brussels, Haus Der Kunst in Munich, Madre in Naples and Kunsthalle Basel in 2014-15. His works and performances have also been exhibited at e.g. the Serpentine Gallery in London and most recently at MoMA PS1 in New York. In 2008 Leckey was awarded the prestigious Turner Prize for his work Industrial Light and Magic. Leckey’s artistic practice spans a wide range of media, from installations, prints and sculptures to video, performance and sound works.
