Trackie McLeod

Overview

Trackie McLeod's work takes a social anthropological look at Britain, touching on pop, lad and subculture.

Trackie McLeod's work explores the intersections of British pop, lad and subcultures of the present and recent past. He describes his practice as “made up of one-part nostalgia, an ounce of sarcasm and 1 pint of Tenants Lager”.

 

Trackie’s work draws upon his memories and experiences growing up as queer and working-class in Glasgow, weaving autobiography, storytelling, and social criticism. Using photography and video as starting points, his ideas also take form in sculpture, installation, and textile. His work has been featured in: The Face, Dazed and i-D amongst others.
