Mark Pearson

Nov 13th – Dec 13th 2009

Preview Thursday 12th November 6-8pm

For his exhibition at Moot, Mark Pearson has directed his macho
brutalist caveman aesthetic to present new sculptures, collages and an
installation called BAR VUG GUM, a DIY pseudo Bavarian vernacular
structure with attached monster karaoke unit.  Pearson will also be
performing in his one fingered Tyrolean synth techno band, 'Yotota
Rockola', on the opening night.

BAR VUG GUM is an unashamed result of tribalism, male bravado and
cultural chauvinism. Pearson's work may seem like grotesque monuments
of redundant empires and social territories, however it is also a
reflection of the monstrous vitality of creative self genesis that
revitalises meaning and affect through the absurd collision of this
ideological language.

Moot have worked with Pearson on a number of projects in the past
including DC Duesseldorf art fair, Germany (2007); Zoo Art Fair,
London (2007/2008); 'Say Sorry for Not Making', Nottingham (2008) and
Zoo Art Enterprises, London (2009).  Recent exhibitions include 'Open
Space', Art Cologne, Solo Presentation with Galerie Reinhard Hauff,
Cologne (2009); 'Disco Mystic', Galerie Reinhard Hauff, Stuttgart
(2008); 'Ventriloquist', Timothy Taylor Gallery, London (2009).

Mark Pearson is represented by Galerie Reinhard Hauff, his work is in
numerous private collections including the Saatchi collection and the
Ludwig Forum, Aachen.

Pearson was born in Wakefield, Yorkshire. He studied at Chelsea
College of Art and Goldsmiths College, London
