Performance: Mark Wayman

Friday 13 January 2012 | 4pm
Bermondsey Square

A Performance / Walking Tour by artist Mark Wayman. As part of Ali MacGilp’s month-long curation at Vitrine Gallery and in a dialogue with Laura Wilson’s installation, artist Mark Wayman will lead a walking tour around the local area. The initial coherence of the tour will disintegrate, leading to surprising new juxtapositions and intrusions.

Mark Wayman takes as his starting point the fabric, function and significance of a chosen location. Through an intense verbal description of it he spins an elaborate alternative version. The artist’s meticulous monologues reveal the place’s miniature histories, disturbing our perception of what may previously have seemed familiar.

Mark Wayman has exhibited widely in the UK and Europe.
