About

‘The starting points can be different catalysts. Either events in my life or something I’ve read, or a piece of music I’m listening to,’ says Luke Fowler of his films. ‘But generally they stem from a sort of concern of trying to understand a question.’ Here Fowler talks about his work before turning the tables on his interviewer to ask some questions of his own. For the Turner Prize exhibition Fowler exhibits his film All Divided Selves 2011, an exploration of the ideas and legacy of Scottish psychiatrist RD Laing (1927–89). The film presents a rich collage of captivating archival material, in which the viewer becomes an inadvertent witness to psychiatric sessions.
