Mark Leckey - BigBoxStatueAction, 2011

The work comes with a signed and numbered Certificate of Authenticity issued by Serpentine Galleries, London.

For BigBoxStatueAction (2003-11), Mark Leckey placed one of his Sound Systems ‘in conversation’ with Henry Moore’s Upright Motive No. 9 (1979). In a series of performances that took place during his exhibition at the Serpentine, London, Leckey played a sound piece created especially for the Moore sculpture in a bid to elicit a response and to coax it to reveal its ‘thoughts’. Leckey produced a limited edition dubplate recording of this sound piece entitled BigBoxStatueAction Special (2011). Composed from sampled music, including drones and unearthly bass, the sound track establishes a dialogue with the scale and history of Henry Moore’s sculpture.
