AboutâHow Does The Group Function?' is both the title and the area of investigation for LUX13's group show at Enclave. The exhibition includes many new works and a comprehensive publication that expands on this central, unifying theme.
LUX13 âCritical Forum' was formed initially as a monthly discussion group for artists who work with the moving image, to talk about ideas and practice in a mutually supportive environment and in dialogue with LUX.
LUX13 comprises 15 artists, working with a range of ideas and themes, within multiple social and cultural contexts.
The artists are: Katriona Beale, Giles Bunch, Jackie Castellano, Sarah Filmer, Katherine Fishman, Patrick Goddard, Liz Helman, Christopher Matthews, Katherine Meynell, Kim L Pace, Samuel Playford-Greenwell, Annelore Schneider (as collectif_fact), Vanessa Scully, Nicola Stephanie, Neasa Terry
As part of the group's dialogue, each member made a new 3 minute work in response to a phrase or word provided by another person in the group. Subsequently, these films have been screened in London, New York and forthcoming, Manchester.
Through meetings, dialogue, discussion and negotiation in an environment of mutual respect and support, and the generous support of the Arts Council England, the group has functioned admirably to present this exciting collection of works.
