Mark Lewis (Canada)

Mark Lewis (b. 1958, Hamilton, Ontario) is a leading visual artist who gained a name primarily creating video installations. He studied at London’s Harrow School of Art and then at the Polytechnic of Central London, where he was influenced by conceptual artist Victor Bergin and film theorist Laura Mulvey. From career beginnings as a photographer he eventually moved over to film-based gallery installations informed by the conceptual art movement of the 1980s. The dozens of movies he has shot since that time have been exhibited at the likes of MoMA (New York), BFI Southbank (London), and the Centre Pompidou (Paris). Lewis is one of the few filmmakers permitted to shoot in London’s National Gallery. The series of 14 shorts he created for the São Paulo Biennale and the Louvre museum were ultimately edited into the feature film Invention. (KVIFF)
