Jerwood/FVU Awards 2017: Neither One Thing Or Another

Patrick Hough and Lawrence Lek

The Jerwood/FVU Awards 2017 exhibition will premiere two newly commissioned moving-image works by selected artists Patrick Hough and Lawrence Lek, the recipients of the 2017 Awards.

In response to the curatorial theme, Neither One Thing Or Another, Hough and Lek have both employed 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 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 invite us to look again at what we think we know and see.
