Malcolm Litson

Artist, Film-maker

Malcolm Litson has a shotgun approach to art practice that includes projection, audio, moving image and 2D media.His work encompasses painting,film,audio/visual performance, music production and large-scale projection.

His work with large-scale video mapped projection evolved from a stint of guerrilla raids such as the infamous image of Gail Porter onto the Houses of Parliament. This was followed with a commission for the Turin Biennale to project large-scale images onto landmark buildings in the city. The projections derived from medical equipment at the Royal College of Surgeons in London, chosen to display human frailty on a maximum scale. This was followed with a VJ performance for the ICA ,commissioned for the Playtime film festival.He has also worked with The Light Surgeons, the 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//Milan/Big Chill Festival) 

Malcolm Litson also set up and curates AVTV, a platform for artist installation and live performance for festivals and events.

He produces and performs music as Bitvert.Perfomances include Glastonbury Festival,Fabric (vocals - Scanone) Blissfield Festival and Nozstock Festival. The Civil Serpent EP was released on Random Records in 2013.
