Mark Leckey

Born in 1964, in Birkenhead (United Kingdom)

Lives and works in London (United Kingdom)

“I’m a fetishist and I fetishise things, I'm drawn to these things and I'm obsessed by them, I have to somehow possess them, because I sense that they possess me. I want a form of reciprocity.”

Mark Leckey draws inspiration from his cultural and material environment. His world is online and digital, made up of cybernetic and bionic technologies. He talks about it through his own obsessions, often objects that he uses in installations, films and sometimes performances.
