ABOUT THE WORK
Building on Under Armour in the Twilight Sparkle, the work made for Art Night Trailers, Mark Leckey’s commission will present a new work where looped YouTube footage of a young man jumping through the glass window of a bus stop is augmented by an acrobat re-enacting the same action as they are flashed by a brilliant light. Part of the work will be filmed at 180 the Strand.
