Javier Peres is pleased to present Mark Titchner’s first solo show with Peres Projects in Berlin, in which the “Plateau Aurora Borealis” has descended upon the entire gallery space. A type of future lieu de memoire, the exhibition furthers the artist’s interest in the metaphysics of text, sound, and aesthetics. Like the artist’s signature placative lightboxes that make large proclamations of paradoxically ambiguous, decontextualized found language, or his “wish amplifiers”, which give concrete form to intangible desires, Mark Titchner’s new body of sculptural work continues to mine the aesthetics of the progressive left and an arcane stylization of post-history.
Mark Titchner was born in Luton in 1973. He has had solo shows at major institutions including Baltic, Gateshead (2008), Arnolfini, Bristol (2006), De Appel, Amsterdam (2004) and in 2006 was nominated for the Turner Prize.
