For the Brighton Photo Biennial and to accompany its major group exhibition Make Life Beautiful! at Brighton Museum and Art Gallery, artist Mark Leckey presented Parade, a sound and video installation at Fabrica. Continuing the artist’s ongoing exploration of style subcultures and other contemporary icons, Mark Leckey’s single-screen projection work is a stylish and provocative meditation on the theme of the metropolitan dandy. Intriguing and disturbing, Leckey’s oblique video narrative is a dark and claustrophobic vision of a man inhabiting a world of hallucinatory desire. A mind-rattling sound of a slightly distorted ‘P…RADE’ exasperates its visual sense of predatory fantasy.
