PEOPLE HAVE COME is an artist talk by Jamie Crewe accompanying their solo exhibition Jamie Crewe: Ashley at LUX
Jamie Crewe presents 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.
Jamie Crewe’s solo exhibition Ashley runs 3 Dec 2020 – 30 Jan 2021 at LUX.
