CONSTRUCTS is the inaugural exhibition at LUX’s new home in Waterlow Park, in Highgate. It marks LUX’s return to Camden, where its predecessor organisation, the London Film-Makers’ Co-operative, was based for more than three decades.
Curated by Matt Carter, the exhibition features work by three emerging London-based artists who graduated this year: Katie Hare (MFA Goldsmiths), Callum Hill (MA RCA), and Ellie Power (BA Wimbledon). Their work spans across HD video, CGI, gaming networks, installation, animation, found footage and 16mm film, with each artist’s diverse practice engaging with and utilising moving image in its many forms today. The works presented in this exhibition interrogate the constructs of the mediums themselves, the latent power they might hold, and examine their relationships to individual and collective cultural constructs.
CONSTRUCTS continues the partnership initiated in 2014 between Art Licks Weekend and LUX for the Moving Image programme of the festival.
