Mark Leckey. O’ Magic Power of Bleakness

01/10/2019 - 05/01/2020

Composed of new and existing work, this exhibition is an atmospheric, theatrical experience of spectral visions, sound and video.

Mark Leckey transforms Tate Britain’s galleries with a life-size replica of a motorway bridge on the M53 on the Wirral, Merseyside, where the artist grew up. The bridge – a recurring motif in his work – is the setting for a new audio play. Focusing on a group of teenagers, the play is inspired by folklore and stories of changelings and ‘fairy raids’ and by the artist’s own pre-adolescent experiences.

New video work will be shown alongside two of his seminal pieces: Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore 1990 and Dream English Kid 1964–1999 AD 2015.
