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.
