Biography

Refusing to adopt a signature style, Turner Prize winner Mark Wallinger produces work that addresses his ongoing preoccupation with, in his words, “the politics of representation and the representation of politics.” He references British history, class, politics, and iconic works of art in his paintings, sculptures, videos, and installations. In State Britain (2006), for example, he recreated the public encampment of peace protester Brian Haw and installed it at Tate Britain, challenging what he views as the erosion of freedom of expression and civil liberties in his country.
