Mark Wallinger

State Britain
From February 29th to June 22nd 2008

The British artist Mark Wallinger, latest winner of the Turner Prize, has installed his sensational work State Britain at the Mac/Val. This monumental installation of nearly 40 metres, is a perfect recreation of a protest display set up by the pacifist Brian Haw. The artist becomes part of heated political debates of our society, questioning the different forms of revolt. It was exhibited at the Tate Britain during the year 2007 and has been exceptionally invited by the Val-de-Marne Contemporary Art Museum from February 29 to June 22, 2008.
