Mark Titchner (b.1973 Luton, UK) lives and works in London. He studied at Hertfordshire College of Art & Design (1992) and Central St Martins College of Art & Design (1995). Mark Titchner uses diverse medium such as digital print, sculpture, film, installation and performance in his work. Titchner’s work incorporates multiple identities alongside past and present, secular and spiritual notions of faith. He often employs imagery and text taken from advertising, evangelical pamphlets, trade union banners, extreme music and political propaganda that give the viewer a call to respond. The common denominator among this material is a quest for idealism and enlightenment; a desire for some form of transcendence. Titchner received a Turner Prize nomination for IT IS YOU, Arnolfini, Bristol (2006). Select projects include the performance Rose with Grumbling Fur at the Roundhouse. Select solo exhibitions include Mark Titchner, CGP, London (2014); Rose, Dilston Grove, London (2014); An image of truth, The Gallery at Foyles, London (2014); Our Knot, Maudsley Learning Centre, public commision (2013); Please Believe These Days Will Pass, The Art Gallery of Ontario, Canada (2012); Mark Titchner: Be no Content and Dennis Rudolph: Wege in den Nihilismus, Upstream Gallery, Amsterdam (2012); and New Art Gallery, Walsall (2011).
