Mark Leckey (b. 1964, Birkenhead, UK) lives in London, UK. Leckey uses a variety of media – including film, sculpture, sound and performance. He has an ongoing fascination with the affective power of images, music and technology, and often uses reconfigured archival footage in his work.

Mark Leckey has assembled a film using archival material from television shows, advertisements and music, to create a record of all the significant events of his life from the 1970s until the 1990s. For Liverpool Biennial 2016, Dream English Kid is presented in an environment that contains new sculptural works connected to material in the film. It is shown at the Blade Factory. 

Leckey has had solo exhibitions at many major international galleries and museums including MoMA PS1, New York, USA (2016); Secession, Vienna, Austria (2015); Haus der Kunst, Munich, Germany (2015); WIELS Contemporary Art Centre, Brussels, Belgium (2014); Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, USA (2013); the Serpentine Gallery, London, UK (2011); Le Consortium, Dijon, France (2007); and Migros Museum, Zurich, Switzerland (2003). He has an exhibition on currently at Grundy Art Gallery, Blackpool, UK (2016).
