Turner Prize winning artist Mark Leckey joins Classic Album Sundays’ DEBONAIR for a deep dive into the ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ album musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, on which the 1971 rock opera of the same name was based.
Mark Leckey is a British contemporary artist, working with collage art, music and video. His found object art and video pieces, which incorporate themes of nostalgia and anxiety, and draw on elements of pop culture, span several videos including Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore (1999) and Industrial Light and Magic (2008), for which he won the 2008 Turner Prize.
‘My Classic Album’ is a series of free-to-view artist interview streams created with support from the Arts Council England Cultural Recovery Fund. Future interviews will feature artists such as Mark Leckie, Emma-Jean Thackray, Steven Wilson and many more.
