LUX Associate Artist Programme 2011-12
Helen Benigson, Andy Lacey, Patricia L Boyd, Heather Phillipson, Paul Simon Richards, Kerstin
Schroedinger and Joseph Walsh.


Edited by Pieternel Vermoortel, hosted
and co-organised by LUX and the Showroom.









How can you relate? looks at what it is to transpose personal practice
into a public event. Constructed as a series of performances, screenings
and works, How can you relate? considers where the artistic subject is
found across constellations of production, distribution and
consumption. The event consists of a series of lateral questions
alongside more tacit propositions that fold back onto the structure of
the event itself.

Paul Simon Richards
The work of Paul Simon Richards explores the potential of thought to
describe and make present in language that which cannot be
experienced. Working mainly with spoken word performance and film,
Richards' work draws together immersive narratives that incorporate
elements of spectacular entertainment and moments of enlightened
consciousness that come about during mundane daily tasks.


Kerstin Schroedinger
Kerstin Schroedinger works with moving image, music and text. She is
interested in a critical research practice which is calling into
question image production and wishes to produce and reproduce images
as material of thought. She works with a historiographic practice that
scrutinises means of production, continuities and relocations. Since
2006 she has worked in collaboration with Mareike Bernien (Berlin) in
different formats and contexts. Their works have an image critical
approach and research cultural practices through concepts of
appropriation and translation.


Joseph Walsh
Joseph Walsh sees his moving image work as a series of "video
portraits". He is interested in this format as a means to construct a
character by proxy, through external objects and ideas. Recent work
has been referring to recorded music, its formats and acoustic space
to describe an emergent subject. He lives and works in London.
Recently he took part in 21st Century at Chisenhale Gallery (2013). Solo
exhibitions include Evolution of the Meringue, Five Years, London
(2011), Track 5, The Old Police Station, London (2011). Group

Machine and Anywhere Door

LUX Associate Artists Programme (AAP)
The LUX Associate Artist Programme is a 12 month post-academic
development course for artists working with the moving image. It aims
to provide an intensive development focused on critical discourse,
extending to the practical and infrastructural issues that present
challenges for artists working with the medium. The programme consists
of a minimum of 12 monthly critical seminars taking place at LUX
exploring issues around artists’ moving image in the context of the
artists’ own practice. Previous AAP Projects include (dis)chorus Residency, a project of the 2010/11 programme, Detroit, the 2009/10
final project, 8 Metaphors (because the moving image is not a book)
for the 2008/9 final project and The Politics in the Room
the AAP 2007/8 final project.
