Invention

Series: Art & Architecture. Artists’ Talks Organised by Parveen Adams
Date: Friday 3 February 2017
Time: 18:30
Venue: Lecture Hall
Running time: 0 mins

Mark Lewis is a Canadian artist who lives and works in London. His film and digital moving image works are frequently depictions of everyday life produced through the use of cinematographic techniques and they make subtle and often accidental allusion to the wider tradition of film, photography and painting. His most recent works include a series of films shot in the Korean DMZ and the film project Invention that imagines a contemporary city with no cinema or moving image devices. In this scenario, the city itself is the cinema, focussing on the intense concentration of moving bodies, shadows and reflections. The project culminated in a feature film titled Invention which premiered at Toronto International Film Festival in September 2015.


Lewis is also a co-founder and co-director of Afterall, a publication and research organisation based in Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, London. In 2009 he represented Canada at the 53rd Venice Biennale and he has exhibited at the Van Abbemuseum (Eindhoven), National Gallery of Canada, MoMA (New York), BFI Southbank (London), Centre Pompidou (Paris) amongst others.
