Jerwood/FVU Awards 2017: Neither One Thing or Another

  • 22 March — 14 May 2017 *on now

Two new moving-image commissions by early career artists Patrick Hough and Lawrence Lek made in response to the curatorial theme Neither One Thing or Another.

Patrick Hough’s work, 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.

Lawrence Lek’s work, Geomancer, harnesses his trademark – the building blocks of computer gaming technology – to set the stage for an awakening of artificial intelligence. This computer-generated ghost in the machine discovers its own autonomy, and ponders the range and limits of its post-human powers of creativity.

The artists were selected from over 250 applications in response to open call to UK artists within the first five years of establishing their practice. Each artist received production support from FVU, in order to develop the new works.

The selectors were: Steven Bode, Director, FVU; Duncan Campbell, artist and Turner Prize 2014 winner; Cliff Lauson, Curator, Hayward Gallery; Amy Sherlock, Reviews Editor, Frieze; and Sarah Williams, Head of Programme, Jerwood Visual Arts.

The Jerwood/FVU Awards are a major annual opportunity for moving-image artists run in partnership by Jerwood Charitable Foundation and FVU. They were established in 2012 in response to a need for significant major commissions for early-career moving-image artists at an unproven stage in their practice, and contribute to an ongoing dialogue around urgent or timely concerns within moving image through the curatorial theme, which changes each year. Alumni include Ed Atkins, Corin Sworn, Emma Hart and Marianna Simnett.

Soheila Sokhanvari, The Sin Eaters, 2017. Crude oil on paper. Installation View. Image: Anna Arca.

Screening: Miranda Pennell, The Host

  • 8 May 2017 7-8:30pm

A screening of The Host by Miranda Pennell, introduced by Soheila Sokhanvari.

In this film, Pennell turns from filmmaker to forensic detective as she pieces together hundreds of photographs in search of what she believes to be a buried history, only to find herself inside the story she is researching. The Host investigates the activities of British Petroleum (BP) in Iran; a tale of power, imperial hubris and catastrophe. While the tectonic plates of geopolitical conspiracy shift in the background, the film asks us to look, and look again, at images produced by the oil company, together with personal photos taken by its British staff in Iran– including the filmmaker’s parents– not for what they show, but for what they betray. The Host is about the stories we tell about ourselves and others, the facts and fictions we live by – and their consequences.

This event has been programmed to coincide with Soheila Sokhanvari’s commission, Paradise Lost, which is installed in the Project Space until 13 May.

Artist Talk and Screening: Jerwood/FVU Awards: Neither One Thing or Another

  • 10 May 2017 From 6:30pm

Two new commissions by the Jerwood/FVU Awards 2017 winners, Patrick Hough and Lawrence Lek, will tour at a series of screening events nationwide. The tour reaches Phoenix, Leicester, on 10 May and will include a talk by artist Patrick Hough.

These ambitious works 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 work 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 films delve between definitions of consciousness, and in the process invite us to look again at what we think we know and see.

Booking information coming soon. Visit the Leicester Phoenix website for more information.
