Luke Fowler

First major survey

The films of Luke Fowler explore the limits of documentary film-making. Innovatively combining new and archival footage, interviews and photography with a densely-layered soundtrack, his work is also a critical response to the idea that documentary can offer us a single objective truth.

Art Exhibition previously on at Serpentine Galleries in Greater London, United Kingdom.
From Thursday 07 May 2009 to Sunday 14 June 2009

Fowler’s meticulously researched subjects include vanguard thinkers and counter-cultural figures, such as RD Laing, Cornelius Cardew and Bogman Palmjaguar. Collaboration is a key element of his process, while he also moves fluidly himself between the roles of artist, curator, historian, film-maker and musician. A central figure in Glasgow’s vibrant art scene, in 2008 he won the inaugural Jarman Award for artist film-makers, presented at the Serpentine Gallery. This exhibition is the first major survey of the artist’s work to date.
