Mark Wallinger in conversation on the Keats-Shelley Podcast

The award-winning artist Mark Wallinger is the latest guest on the Keats-Shelley Prize podcast. The spur was Mark’s 2018 work Writ in Water, which was inspired in part by John Keats’ epitaph, Here lies one whose name was writ in water. Given that Writ in Water was the theme of 2021’s Keats-Shelley Prizes, it seemed too good a chance to waste.

In a wide-ranging conversation, Mark talks about his life, career and love of literature - in particular, the poetry of John Keats. As well as exploring the influence these words had on Writ in Water, he discusses the time he spent in Rome, surviving pandemics and lockdowns, and even reads a limerick of his own - about Masaccio and perspective. There is even time to ponder UFOs, painters on film and to offer advice to young artists.
