A brief introduction to one of the nominees for the 2012 Turner Prize
His solo exhibition at Inverleith House, Edinburgh.
Who he is
Glasgow-based Fowler has had a retrospective at the Serpentine gallery, and won the inaugural Derek Jarman award for artist film-makers. He makes densely woven collage-like documentary films, usually about prominent counter-cultural thinkers such as the psychiatrist RD Laing.
What they say
‘The experience of watching one of Fowler’s films is akin to the process of getting to know someone, with all its attendant paradoxes, hiatuses and leaps of faith.’
