Zoo Logic by Mark Leckey

Felix The Cat - Artist Mark Leckey

Zoo Logic by Mark Leckey
9 September 2016 - 26 February 2017
Venue: Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool
A huge inflatable version of Felix the Cat is one of two installations by Turner Prize-winning artist Mark Leckey on display at the Walker Art Gallery as part of a new exhibition. ZOO LOGIC by Mark Leckey.

The Birkenhead-born artist 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.



In addition to the 10m high Inflatable Felix, the gallery will display FEELINTHECAT, a 70th Anniversary Arts Council Collection commission. This major new installation invites visitors to enter a large dome, shaped to resemble Felix's head.

Inside the dome, two screens play a looped film which shows Mark Leckey ‘transforming into Felix’, inspired by a photograph of a Disneyland cast-member in a Mickey Mouse costume. The shape of the dome acts as a giant speaker, amplifying the sound of the film to create an immersive experience.
