As a painter, sculptor and video artist Mark Wallinger has created some of the most subtly intelligent and irreverent work from the UK in the last twenty-five years. His early work questioned the values and class system of British society through photorealist paintings of racehorses with suggestive titles such as Race, Class, Sex (1993). He later explored institutionalised spirituality and religion through the video Angel (1997) and his Fourth Plinth commission in Trafalgar Square, Ecce Homo (1999).

After a retrospective at Tate Liverpool in 2000, representing Britain at the Venice Biennale in 2001, winning the Turner Prize in 2007 with his socially engaged installation “State Britain”, Wallinger’s work continues to intersect the public sphere culminating in the Ebbsfleet Landmark Project – a fifty metre sculpture of a white horse standing in the English countryside in 2012 and a multi-part work entitled Labyrinth marking the 150th anniversary of London Underground in 2013.
Signed copies of the book will be available to purchase after the event.
