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