Mark Leckey creates his works by merging, sampling, recreating and referencing material. His videos, collages and performances reference Saint Just, Montesqieu, Walther Pater Patrick Procter as well as Beyonce, Jeff Koons and the Spice Girls. 7 Windmill Street W1 is the first survey catalogue of his work. Conceived as a source book of his working methods and fields of interest, it has been edited by the artist and features extensive imagery of works such as Fiorucci Made Me Hardcover, Soundsystems and Donateller, as well as a wealth of other visual materials he has gathered through the years. In addition to original contributions by the artist, it includes reprints of texts from Michel Leiris, and the 19th century-writer Walter Pater, and song lyrics.
