Turner prize nominee to speak at HopeFriday 13 January 2017
A free talk by Turner Prize nominee Mark Titchner is the latest public event presented by the Liverpool Hope and FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technologies) partnership.
In 2006, Mark was nominated for the Turner prize and his work was showcased in the Venice Biennale at the Ukraine Pavilion.
Mark works with various media including digital print, wall drawings, video, sculpture and installation. In recent years the focus of much of his production has been based in the public realm.
His practice explores systems of belief, both secular and spiritual, often focusing on the marginalised, discredited or forgotten ideologies and objects we place our faith in. By the use of impersonal language of the public realm, ranging from the corporate mission statements to the maxims of revolutionary socialism, his work exhorts the viewer to believe in it. Mark is represented by the Vilma Gold Gallery, London.
The event is free to the public, and part of the FACT/Liverpool Hope partnership, which includes guest lectures, an artist residency competition and lessons on code for Fine Art students.
Liverpool Hope Fine Art graduate Amy Worsley, winner of the 2016 Graduate Production Residency Award recently exhibited her work at FACT as part of their No Such Thing as Gravity exhibition.
Mark will discuss his practice and his experiences as a working artist On Tuesday 24th January at 11am (Cornerstone 001). The event is free and open to the public.
