Luke Fowler

Luke Fowler is an artist, filmmaker and musician based in Glasgow. His work explores the limits and conventions of biographical and documentary filmmaking, and has often been compared to the British Free Cinema of the 1950s. Working with archival footage, photography and sound, Fowler's filmic montages create portraits of intriguing, counter cultural figures, including Scottish psychiatrist R. D. Laing and English composer Cornelius Cardew.

He has had numerous solo exhibitions, including at Plymouth Arts Centre; Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane; Serpentine Gallery, London. He was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2012. In 2008 he won the Film London Jarman Award.
