Mark Peter Wright

Mark Peter Wright is an artist and researcher working at the intersections of sound arts, experimental pedagogy and critical theory. His practice investigates relations of capture and mediation between humans and nonhumans, sites and technologies, observers and subjects. Ongoing questions include: how does environmental sound convey complex geopolitical meaning? How can technology be practiced with an eco-critical sensitivity and how might listening operate beyond the human? Working between the field and lab, site and gallery, audible and inaudible, he is committed to amplifying forms of power within the creative use of documentary media and site-based praxis. He has exhibited internationally at galleries and institutes including the ICA, Flat Time House, GV Art, IMT Gallery, Platform A, MIMA, Southbank Centre and TATE [UK], CCA [Scotland], Museum of Contemporary Art [Italy], Lydgalleriet [Norway] and New York Public Library [USA]. Performance and public interventions include Apiary Studios, Art Licks, Café Oto, The Showroom, V22 [UK] Trinity House Sq [Ireland] and HIAP [Finland]. He has a collaborative practice called Matterlurgy artist Helena Hunter.
