Malcolm Litson

Artist, Film-maker

I have a shotgun approach to art practice that includes projection, audio, moving image and 2D media.Recent projects include music production and large-scale projection.

Impunity is a current video installation in Waterside Arts Centre, Sale, Manchester.

My work with projection evolved from a stint of guerrilla advertising such as the infamous projection of Gail Porter onto the Houses of Parliament. This was followed with a project for the Turin Biennale. I was comissioned to project images onto landmark buildings in the city. The images derive from medical equipment at the Royal College of Surgeons in London. I chose this imagery to display human frailty and present it on a maximum scale. This was followed with an Audio/Visual installation for the ICA ,commissioned for the Playtime film festival. The resulting video projection had a performance aspect where filmed images are mixed to to an audio soundtrack. Recently, I have been working with The Light Surgeons, an established multimedia collective.Projects have included audio production for 'LDN24' at The Museum of London and music production and performance for 'True Fictions', a live audio/visual performance.(New York/London IMAX/Hong Kong/Belfast/Madrid/Brighton/Milan/Big Chill Festival/ Other creatives I have worked with are Scanone,Insight and Field.
