Action Space is a London based visual arts organisation that supports artists with learning disabilities and creates innovative projects for people with learning disabilities to engage with the visual arts. Their work with high profile cultural organisations such as the Royal Academy of Arts, Camden Arts Centre, The Museum of Everything, Outside In/Pallant House Gallery and The National Portrait Gallery has helped to establish a place for artists with learning disabilities in the contemporary arts sector.
Mark Lawrence is an artist based at Action Space’s studio at Studio Voltaire, Clapham. Mark’s practice is highly experimental ranging from painting, sculpture, collage and film. Over the last year Mark has created a series of film pieces by projecting footage of his paintings and collages, exploring ways to interact with the projections then re filming his interactions. For Clever The Way It’s Moving Mark invites the viewer to continue this exploration alongside him and become immersed in his large-scale projections, exploring movement, reflections, materials and shadows.
A full profile of Mark including his past exhibitions and biography can be found at www.actionspace.org
