Luke Fowler – Pleasure Of Your Company (2009)

by fashionartbooks

British artist and film maker, Luke Fowler was recently announced as one of this years Turner Prize shorlisted artists. His works, which are often described as cinematic collages, incorporate audio recordings that compliment rather than didactically labour the visuals. In 2008, he was awarded the Derek Jarman Award at the Serpentine Gallery which was followed by his first major solo exhibition there the following year. The exhibition comprised three films covering subjects such as the Kingsley Hall refuge set up by psychiatrist R.D. Laing and the career of avant-garde composer Cornelius Cardew. The exhibition was accompanied by a limited edition print entitled Pleasure Of Your Company which was produced in an edition size of 150. The print is still available direct from the gallery and is sure to be a good investment.
