Case Study—Online, 2020

03 December 2020 - LUX, Waterlow Park Centre, London

The On & For Case Studies are usually public seminars that unpack the process of filmmaking, starting with an idea that travels from a sketch or scribble in a notepad to on the screen, together with a live audience. Now, though, in times of crisis, we are finding new methods to learn from one another.

We are proud to support our partners LUX and LUX Scotland in their presentation of the recorded artist’s talk PEOPLE HAVE COME by the artist Jamie Crewe, which will be launched on Thursday 3 December 2020.

This recorded case study accompanies the exhibition Ashley by Jamie Crewe. They will present "a recorded artist’s talk in which they discuss a technique that recurs throughout their practice. They have named the technique PEOPLE HAVE COME, and it describes courting and avoiding publicness. For certain kinds of people the desire to be seen, recognised, and understood is as powerful as the urge to hide, be illegible, and repel investigation. In reference to Ashley, as well as to other works and experiences, this talk traces eruptions of this ambivalent seam in Jamie’s life and practice. PEOPLE HAVE COME will be available online on the LUX website for the duration of the show."
