Leckey’s 2017 exhibition Affect Bridge Age Regression mutated out of the large-scale survey of his work shown at New York’s MoMA PS1, and is a refracted view of his memories and internal mythologizing of a motorway bridge on the M53 in Birkenhead near his childhood home. Life-size portions of overpass, a scale model and sodium-lamp lighting all create a hallucinatory ‘bridge’ (natch) into Leckey’s twisted mind…"The orange sodium lights are called Sox Lamps and they were installed everywhere up until the 1990s, I think. They’ve been phased out now. The Lucozade glow they give off was always an indicator that you were coming up on magic mushrooms, psychedelics would amplify that colour saturation, or rather that leaching out of all other colour. I want the lamps to do the same thing… put you in that altered state.”
