About this essay

In her essay, curator Patrizia Dander returns to Mark Leckey's 2004 exhibition "Septic Tank", in which "Fiorocci Made Me Hardcore" was exhibited and which made the artist famous overnight. Recurring themes in Leckey's work, such as the processing and thus destruction of existing material, or his relationship to objects, are analyzed based on his earlier work and related to his more recent work.
