Description

This publication accompanies the Jerwood/FVU Awards 2017, for which Patrick Hough and Lawrence Lek were commissioned to create major new works using moving image.In response to the curatorial theme, Neither One Thing or Another both artists employ pioneering, conceptually fitting, technologies to examine the steadily blurring line between the real and the artificial. Amongst stills from each of the films, the dedicated texts by Steven Bode and Naomi Pearce explore the wider questions raised by the curatorial premise, assembling conceptual parallels between the new works by Hough and Lek.The Jerwood/FVU Awards are a collaboration between Jerwood Charitable Foundation and Film and Video Umbrella. FVU is supported by Arts Council England. Published on the occasion of the exhibition, Neither One Thing or Another at Jerwood Space, London (22 March - 14 May 2017). UK-wide special screenings of the films at venues include: CCA, Glasgow; HOME, Manchester; Arnolfini, Bristol; and FACT, Liverpool.

Neither One Thing or Another premieres two newly commissioned moving-image installations by Patrick Hough and Lawrence Lek, the recipients of the Jerwood/FVU Awards 2017.

In response to the curatorial theme, Neither One Thing or Another, Hough and Lek both employ pioneering, conceptually fitting, technologies to examine the steadily blurring line between the real and the artificial. In Geomancer, Lek harnesses his trademark - the building blocks of computer gaming technology - to set the stage for an awakening of artificial intelligence. Hough’s film And If In A Thousand Years takes us to the Californian desert, where the landscape was filmed and digitally scanned using LiDAR, to host a Hollywood-inspired merging of authenticity and replica. Both works delve between definitions of consciousness, and in the process invite us to look again at what we think we know and see.
