Louis-Jack Horton-Stephens is an artist and award-winning filmmaker based in London. He is an Associate of Open School East, a free postgraduate study programme for emerging artists.
Records of history are by their very nature subjective, selective and specious. History is neither written by the losers, nor the winners, but those who know how to tell a story. Louis-Jack’s work considers the creation of legacy through haptic reasoning and embedded physical knowledge. Intelligence of this kind is often indescribable but is evident within the flourishes of a broad range of craftspeople: from artisans and engineers to actors and athletes. His work takes form through collaboration, in part as a way of testing the archetype of the auteur.
