The Architectural Association Presents: Mark Lewis 28 Oct 2016

Mark Lewis is a Canadian artist who lives and works in London. His film and digital moving image works are frequently depictions of everyday life produced through the use of cinematographic techniques and they make subtle and often accidental allusion to the wider tradition of film, photography and painting. His most recent works include a series of films shot in the Korean DMZ and the film project Invention that imagines a contemporary city with no cinema or moving image devices. In this scenario, the city itself is the cinema, focusing on the intense concentration of moving bodies, shadows and reflections. The project culminated in a feature film entitled Invention which premiered at Toronto International Film Festival in 2015.
