Austin Collings V Mark Leckey

Austin Collings V Mark Leckey

Artist Mark Leckey has created a visual portal to the past to be shown at this year’s Liverpool Biennial.

Chronicling events from Leckey’s life, circa 1970 – 1990, his ‘Dream English Kid’ film will be presented among new sculptural works connected to material in the film. Visitors will be able to view the work at previous entrance to legendary dance music night Cream, the Saw Mill. 

Here, fellow YouTube voyager Austin Collings unearths some of his favourite clips.

The Liverpool Biennial runs from 9 July - 16 October.
