Mark Leckey’s first major video work, Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore (1999), was informed by the artist’s working class upbringing. Foregrounding Leckey’s use of collage, music, and film, the work featured cut-up footage of the 1970s, ’80s, and ’90s UK dance-music scenes. His more recent work combines ancient and digital items to examine the way objects—artistic, primitive, and quotidian—“speak” to each other. GreenScreenRefrigeratorAction (2010) features a Samsung smart refrigerator “acting” against the background of a green screen, while The Universal Addressability of Dumb Things explores the Internet of Things, the science fiction–like scenario of digitally embedded sensors that allow humans and machines to remotely interact. In 2008, Leckey won the Turner Prize for his exhibition “Industrial Lights and Image”.
