biography

Mark Le Ruez was born in Jersey, Channel Islands and now lives and works in Berlin, Germany.

 

In 1997, a year after completing a national diploma in art and design at Falmouth College of Art, he undertook what was to become a decade long photographic project documenting Havre des Pas sea water bathing pool, a 19th century construction situated on the south coast of Jersey.

 

Between 2005 and 2008 he returned to study, obtaining a degree in sculpture from Winchester School of Art. During this period his practice broadened from the medium of photography to encompass drawing, video work, and installation.

 

His work has been selected for group exhibitions by Bluetenweiss in Berlin, the National Portrait Gallery in London, and the Royal Photographic Society. Solo exhibitions of his work have been held at Kurt Kurt in Berln, Bloc Projects in Sheffield, the Garrik Gallery in Jersey, and the Jersey Museum.

 

In April 2015 his first solo exhibition in Jersey for over ten years opened at the Berni Gallery in Jersey.
