MARK LECKEY // AFFECT BRIDGE AGE REGRESSION
23 June – 30 July 2017
The title of the exhibition Affect Bridge Age Regression refers to a technique used in hypnotherapy to associate recurrent bodily feelings back to its earliest memory – once brought back the recollection can be vivified. The exhibition further explores Leckey’s childhood memory of a motorway bridge, a recurring presence in his recent work, including the 2015 video Dream English Kid 1964 – 1999 AD.
More information is available here.
