Mark Peter Wright is a multidisciplinary artist interested in the relations of power between humans, animals, sites and the technology we use to “capture” them. His work seeks to animate and contest these dynamics, articulated through performances, installations and hypothetical interventions. Wright’s work often revolves around a specific site, understanding site as a collaborative, contested and participatory place of simultaneous production and representation.
Mark Peter Wright [b. 1979, Kings Lynn UK] studied at the London College of Communication – University of the Arts, London and Manchester Metropolitan University, Manchester. He has exhibited and broadcast works internationally including the Tate Britain, London; Flat Time House, London; Barbican Centre, London; Queen Elizabeth Hall – South Bank Centre, London; British Library, London and on BBC Radio 3 and Resonance FM. In 2009 he was awarded the British Composer of the Year Award (Sonic Arts) for his work A Quiet Reverie which premiered at IMT Gallery in 2008. In 2012 he was nominated for a Prix Ars Electronica award in Digital Musics & Sound Art. Wright is also the founder of Ear Room, an online publication exploring the use of sound in artistic practice and the co curator (with Salomé Voegelin) of Points of Listening, a monthly series of events and activities in and around London.
