Marcos Lutyens' practice centres on the use of experiential installation, using various parallel approaches to explore group and individual consciousness to engage interaction. Marcos has created installations and performances for brands such as Samsung, Royal Salute, Kodak and Absolut Vodka. These commercial projects incorporate the sensory abilities of the audience to directly experience the brand in a new way, by utilising Marcos’s unique approach to art-making.

 
Marcos’s international success has seen him exhibit and perform in museums and institutions around the world including the Guggenheim, LACMA, the Pompidou, the Royal Academy, the National Art Museum of China, MoMA PS1 and dOCUMENTA(13).

 
Marcos has been exhibiting ‘Alphabet Huts’ at the Baltic Triennial’s CAC in Vilnius and Krakow where he  launched his book ‘Memoirs of a Hypnotist: 100 Days.’  His current work includes projects at 2 upcoming European Biennials, a world wide Time Capsule project involving the brain trust of visionaries from around the world and an exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum, NY.

memory observatory, SXSW austin

In a world where technology often isolates us and digital images disappear faster than our recollection of the original events, the Memory Observatory develops a counter-flow that regenerates memories while bridging the gap between us, as social beings.

It serves as a platform of collective consciousness across space and time.

memoirs of a hypnotist : 100 days

When Marcos Lutyens arrived in Kassel in the summer of 2012, he didn’t know he would end up staying for the entire 100 days of documenta 13 to perform 340 hypnotic sessions with the audience. Unfolding in the Reflection Room in Kassel’s Karlsaue Park, it was the most involved installment of the Hypnotic Show to date—“an exhibition that exists only in the mind of the audience,” according to Lutyens’s collaborator Raimundas Malašauskas.
