Marcos Lutyens’s practice has centered on the investigation of consciousness to engage the visitor’s embodied experience of art. Exhibitions of infinite scale and nature have been installed in the minds of visitors. His investigations have included research with social groups such as the third-gender Muxhe, Raeilians, synaesthetes, border migrants, space engineers and mental architects to explore how unconscious mind-sets shift across cultures and backgrounds. Lutyens has developed projects that involve our external surroundings. Works include interactions with pedestrian flows, social media dialogue, air quality levels, animal and biological intercommunication.

Marcos Lutyens has exhibited internationally such as at dOCUMENTA(13),  the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Centre Georges Pompidou, the Royal Academy, the National Art Museum of China and MoMA PS1, as well as the 14th Istanbul Biennial. Lutyens recently launched his book Memoirs of a Hypnotist: 100 Days.  Present work includes projects at Manifesta, the Liverpool Biennial and GAM, Turin.
