We are delighted to be hosting Mark Wallinger for a visit to Cornwall. Wallinger’s Ecce Homo was the first work to occupy the empty plinth in Trafalgar Square (1999–2000). He represented Great Britain at the Venice Biennale in 2001 and won the Turner Prize in 2007. He will give a public talk here at CAST, as well as talks to students at Falmouth University and Helston Community College.
For his talk at CAST, Mark Wallinger will focus on moving image work, showing excerpts from films including Sleeper, which records his performance at the Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin in 2004, when Wallinger spent ten nights dressed as a brown bear inhabiting the empty gallery space.
