Mark Titchner, the highly-acclaimed artist, is best known for his monumental text based work. He was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2006 for a solo show at the Arnolfini, Bristol, which the Tate described as “hybrid installations…working across a wide range of media, including light boxes and extraordinary hand-carved contraptions, his work continues to interweave a vast array of references from heavy metal lyrics to philosophy.”
In 2007 he was included in the 52nd Venice Biennale exhibiting in Ukraine’s Pavilion, A Poem about an Inland Sea. A solo exhibition Run, Black River, Run followed at BALTIC, Gateshead early in 2008. His book WHY AND WHY NOT was published by Bookworks in 2004. He has exhibited widely in the UK, US and Europe and his work is held in the permanent collections of the South London Gallery, the United Kingdom Government Art Collection and the Tate.
