Excerpt / Whether he’s revealing the interior monologue of a refrigerator or assembling “dumb things” for museological treatment, Mark Leckey’s work recognizes the animism that technology bestows upon objects. For the exhibition “On Pleasure Bent,” Leckey pays extra attention to the underlying processes that enable things to come alive, such as binary code, electricity, and the RGB color model. This new body of work, created in conjunction with his residency at the Hammer Museum, connects the operations of these foundational supports to the parallel flow and mutability of images in the digital era.
