Mark Leckey will present one in a series of four live evening performances of BigBoxStatueAction, designed specifically to suit the unique acoustic qualities of the Serpentine Gallery. For BigBoxStatueAction (2003-2011), Leckey places one of his Sound Systems 'in conversation' with a modernist sculpture. In order to elicit a response from the sculpture, Leckey serenades it with a sound piece created from sampled music and archive material. If the community of clubbers depicted in Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore share a group mentality and the 'smart' fridge of GreenScreenRefrigeratorAction is an appliance with a mind of its own, in BigBoxStatueAction Leckey attempts to coax the sculpture to reveal its thoughts.
