Paintings, prints and previously unseen drawings from the personal archive of Mark Wigan, containing 50 years worth of material.
His practice is multi faceted traversing multi model ways of working, encompassing a wide variety of experimental approaches and media. This includes video, photography, book-works, sculptural pieces, drawing, painting, public art, performance, writing, curatorial projects, and context specific installation.
His research explores the relationship between narrative and memory, exploring identity, the networked self, phenomenology and the contemporary role of the artist in the post digital landscape. Broader research interests revolve around interdisciplinary connections between anthropology and contemporary art, curatorial practice, and the role of collections and archives as a visual resource. All of this informs his practice.
Wigan responds to narratives of place, the values of culture, historical and cultural geography and the practise of collecting. He excavates and reinterprets this accumulative content constantly.
Mark Wigan, co-curator of the Museum of Club Culture, boasts an impressive history. Wigan was head of BA (Hons) and MA Illustration at Camberwell College of Arts and trained at Manchester Polytechnic and Hull School of Art & Design. Mark has also lectured at Central St Martins, Coventry University, Salford University and HSAD.
This exhibition provides an opportunity for the viewer to gain insights into the creative processes behind the work of one of Britain’s preeminent contemporary artists.
