Masterclass Series is a programme in which visiting international artists participate in public talks and a series of sessions which engage with TBG+S Studio Artists on collective, as well as, one-to-one basis. Artists Mark Titchner, Katrina Palmer and Mike Nelson were selected and invited by TBG+S Studio Artists as artists who inspire them.
The first Artist Talk in the Masterclass Series featured London-based artist Mark Titchner in which he discussed his artistic practice to date, focusing particularly on recent public art projects and sound based artworks.
Videos of Artist Talks by Katrina Palmer and Mike Nelson in conversation with Jaki Irvine, as part of the Masterclass Series, coming soon.
Mark Titchner works with various media including digital print, wall drawings, video, sculpture and installation. His practice explores systems of belief, both secular and spiritual, often focusing on the marginalised, discredited or forgotten ideologies and objects we place our faith in. By the use of impersonal language of the public realm, ranging from the corporate mission statements to the maxims of revolutionary socialism, his work exhorts the viewer to believe in it.
In 2006 Mark was nominated for the Turner prize and his work was showcased in the Venice Biennale at the Ukraine Pavilion. He is represented by the Vilma Gold Gallery, London.
