Lu Goo (Lucy Goodwin) is a London based artist whose work manifests predominantly through film, sculpture and instillation. Though the content of the work is constantly evolving, the underlying themes of control, ritual and worship are a constant in her pieces. Such ideals are evident in the film piece ‘Baby Teeth’, a D.I.Y 'documentary' exploring the post-modern interpretation of western religion, following the dissolution of the divine and the resolution of the celebrity icon - most notably in the rising trend of 'Culkinism', the worship of former child star Macaulay Culkin. Baby Teeth blurs the lines between what is real and what is false in a dark yet often comical allegory for the state of organised religion bordering upon cult-hood. Shifting from the notion of control through religion, Lu Goo’s work re-established itself in “I Can Never Go Home Anymore, Mama!”, an instillation piece scrutinising what it is to be a voyeur and the concept of the ‘emancipated spectator’ through film, as explored in the same titled essays of Jaques Ranciere and the films of Michael Haneke. Through its display over multiple screens, the work too begins to question the notion of over-exposure of the media, or perhaps the mind and its effects on an audience, whilst, through the film footage itself, critically investigating the fragility of memory and how both external and innate processes can be altered to form something neither truth nor fiction. Born in Blackpool, Lu Goo later relocated to South London to study Fine Art (Painting) at Camberwell College of Art.Locked Pro Plan feature
