BIRKENHEAD born Turner Prize winning artist Mark Leckey will create a life-size replica of a M53 motorway bridge for a large-scale exhibition at Tate Britain.

O'Magic Power of Bleakness is the name of the ambitious exhibition which will combine new and existing work in an atmospheric, theatrical environment with sounds and visions.

At the heart of the exhibition - which begins on September 24 and runs until January 5, 2020 - Leckey will create a lifesize replica of a motorway bridge on the M53.

As a recurring motif which has haunted Leckey's work, the bridge will become the setting for a new audio play.

The play is inspired by folklore and will focus on a group of teenagers while exploring the artist's own pre-adolescent experiences.

Moving image will be the key aspect of the exhibition with new works shown alongside two videos: Fiorucci Made Made Me Hardcore 1990 and Dream English Kid 1964-1999 AD 2015.

Fiorucci consists of a compilation of footage from dance floors charting the coutnry's underground club scene from the 70s through to the 90s.

In Dream English Kid, Leckey shows memories from his life through material found online and inspired by his discovery of a YouTube video of a Joy Division gig he attended as a teen.

Each film documents key periods in his life and in technological advancement with a focus on the shift from analogue to digital.

Known as one of the UK's most influential artists working today, Leckey first came to prominence in the late 1990s and has addressed the relationship between pop culture and technology while exploring ideas around personal history and the nature of memory.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue and a public programme of events including a variety night curated by Leckey taking place within the event space.

It will coincide with Tate Britain's major exhibition of William Blake, an artist whose radical visionary work has been a source of fascination for Leckey.
