ZOO LOGIC by Mark Leckey
Giant, inflatable Felix the Cat by renowned Wirral artist stars in new exhibition
A huge, inflatable version of Felix the Cat is one of two installations by Turner Prize-winning artist Mark Leckey to be displayed at the Walker Art Gallery as part of a new exhibition. ZOO LOGIC by Mark Leckey runs from 9 September 2016 until 26 February 2017.
The ten-metre-high feline is likely to raise a smile from visitors as he lazes casually within the Gallery – a familiar character in a very unexpected setting!
Birkenhead-born Leckey is known for his long-standing interest in moving image and broadcast technology, and specifically in Felix the Cat; a Felix doll on a gramophone turntable was the first picture to be transmitted on TV in America in 1928.
