Catalogue Note

“... Felix takes on a number of roles in Leckey’s work, including as a motif for broadcasting, an avatar for the artist for whom the idea of turning into a cat is something that incites both fear and desire, as well as a reference to the subculture of 'furries' or 'furry fandom'" (Nicholas Forrest, 'Mark Leckey Channels Felix the Cat at Grundy Art Gallery, Blouin ArtInfo, May 2016, online).
