Nel 2010 è stato insignito del Mark Tanner Award per la scultura, e nel 2013 Black Dog Press ha pubblicato un libro commemorativo del premio, dal titolo  Thinking is Making . Fra le mostre recenti: Odds , TOMA Projects, Southend  (UK), 2019;  Open Studio Rein Dufait , in dialogo con  Hans Demeulenaere  e  Maria Zahle, O stenda ( BE ),  2018; Arcade, Lond ra (UK), 2017;  Frieze Sculpture , Regents Park Lon dra (UK), 2017;  Artist Boss , New Art Centre, Roche Court, Salisbury  (UK), 2017, una mostra dedicata agli assistenti di studio di Sir Anthony Caro  (Wallbank  è stato assistente di Caro dal 2005 al 2013) e alla questione dell’eredità artistica nella scultura inglese.       Arcade è lieta di ospitare la prima mostra personale nel Regno Unito di  Marijke De Roover , nella quale l’artista presenterà una versione ridotta all’essenziale e “unplugged” della sua recente creazione operistica  Live, Laugh, Limerence , commissionata dalla David Roberts Art Foundation ed eseguita per la prima volta nell’ottobre 2019, nel corso della serata di performance  Ministry of Sound . Con questa performance operistica,  De Roover  riflette sul modo in cui coreografiamo culturalmente e organizziamo la performance amorosa secondo strutture etero-normative; i cliché delle commedie romantiche, del teatro musicale, dell’opera, del karaoke, di Disney. La mostra include opere della serie recente dei “memes” accanto alla versione video di  Live, Laugh, Limerence ...
