Description

Networked Narrative in BURNLEY
Artist Talk: Mark Titchner

2-3pm / Burnley College, Performance Theatre
FREE, booking required

To coincide with new public artworks being installed across Burnley, London-based artist Mark Titchner will talk about his diverse art practice, where he works with various media including digital print, wall drawings, video, sculpture and installation. In recent years 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.


In 2006 Mark was nominated for the Turner prize and his work was showcased in the Venice Biennale at the Ukraine Pavilion. He is represented by the Vilma Gold Gallery, London.


This talk is part of a series of public events to accompany ‘What I want more than anything else’ in Burnley, a public art project by Mark Titchner involving young people from Burnley, Wigan & Hull.


‘What I want more than anything else’ is commissioned by FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology), in partnership with Hull Culture & Leisure Ltd, Inspiring healthy lifestyles and Lancashire County Council.
