The Age of Happiness
Exhibition by the British artist, Mark Titchner featuring light boxes, video and sculpture installations...
Titchner is considered one of the most established young British artists. Born in 1973, in Luton, UK, he studied at the Central St. Martins College of Art and Design in London. He has already been nominated in 2006 for the Turner Prize, Britain’s most influential contemporary art award. He has presented many solo exhibitions (London, Los Angeles, Madrid, Berlin) and has participated in several group exhibitions in Britain and abroad, including a participation in the 52nd Venice Biennale in 2007.
Titchner’s art attempts to question the truth of the information which bombards us on a daily basis, as well as our blind faith in science, religion and the political status quo. The exhibition presents a representative sample of Titchner’s work: 22 artworks including The Age of Happiness, that Titchner creates especially for his exhibition in Greece and How to Change Behavior (Tiny Masters of the World Come Out), which was nominated for the Turner Prize. Artemis Poramianou, curator / artist, curates the exhibition.
On Saturday, October 10, 2009 at 13:00, curator Artemis Potamianou gives a guided tour of the exhibition.
