Marc Blackie is a British Photographer turned Filmmaker, renowned for his surrealist compositions and irredeemably awkward interpretation of erotica.
His art has been described by the New York Magazine as “Jarringly combining eroticism with the uncomfortable and sinister” and by Italian magazine Fluffer as “Dark, Iconoclastic and politically uncorrect”.
“Brilliant surrealist work which exploits and examines the iconography of eroticism, full of introverted beauty and a vein of very black humour underpinning a variety of sexual hang ups. Exceptional and inspirational.”
Nick Knight’s ShowStudio has recently featured his two film collaborations with Tessa Kuragi, “Adoration” and “Parfois, mon corps me trahit” and with ongoing film festival appearances and exhibitions in New York, Hong Kong, Barcelona, Rome, Paris and many other international locations, Blackie’s work continues to push boundries and challenge preconceived notions of desire, lust and the ridiculousness of the human libido.
In 2017, his short film “Fucking Doesn’t Help” won the Best Experimental Film Award at the Hong Kong Third Culture Film festival and he was also awarded the “Best Bizarre” trophy from Mexican “Mondo Bizarro” film festival.
2017 has also seen the production of two videos for the Alternative Blues Group, Miraculous Mule. These include “Shave em Dry” featuring Nina Kate and “Ain’t it Hard” featuring Joe Cushley.
