The title of the exhibition Affect Bridge Age Regression refers to a technique used in hypnotherapy to associate recurrent bodily feelings back to its earliest memory – once brought back the recollection can be vivified.


The exhibition further explores Leckey’s childhood memory of a motorway bridge, a recurring presence in his recent work, including the 2015 video Dream English Kid 1964 – 1999 AD. The installation includes a model bridge, a series of posters, sodium lamps commonly used for street lighting and a new sound work.

The bridge is real. It exists on the outskirts of the city. Leckey describes it as “a Hungry Ghost standing at the very end of the 20th century”. It is nostalgically attached to him like an out of sight body part or chimera’s mutated limb, acting as a conduit for memory, technology and somatic effect.

Recurrence, reconsideration and reworking are common in Leckey’s practice as ways of unravelling preoccupations and working through ideas. The gallery at Cubitt plays host to Leckey’s ongoing exploration of the bridge, inviting viewers to play a role in his recollection.
