Details

Artist Mark Titchner explores the tensions between the different belief systems that inform our society, be they religious, scientific or political. He works across a number of media including digital print, wall drawing, video, sculpture, and often employs motifs taken from advertising, religious iconography, club flyers, trade union banners, psychedelia and political propaganda.

In this exhibition, Mark will present a number of works exploring the notions of displacement and belonging in connection to migration and national identity, including large-scale posters developed with asylum seekers and refugees in Manchester in 2017, as well as a new wall drawing based on the Colchester coat of arms.
