Brexit, social, civic and national identity, displacement and belonging are some of the themes explored in this exhibition by 2006 Turner Prize nominee Mark Titchner.

Through a range of new and existing work, Titchner explores the tensions between the different belief systems that inform our society, be they religious, scientific or political.

He works with a number of media including digital print, wall drawing, video, sculpture, and often employs motifs taken from advertising, religious iconography, club flyers, trade union banners, psychedelia and political propaganda.

In Some Questions about Us, Mark presents a number of works exploring the relationship between the individual and others in connection with migration and national identity, including large-scale posters developed with asylum seekers and refugees in Manchester in 2017 (Listen to me, 2017), as well as a new wall drawing based on the Colchester coat of arms.
