Luke Fowler’s Bogman Palmjaguar is a portrait of its namesake, a former patient of radical psychologist R.D. Laing who now lives a hermetic life in the Flow Country of the Scottish Highlands. Documenting the environment of the surrounding landscape as much as its human focus, the images are accompanied by Lee Patterson’s evocative field recordings. Genesis P-Orridge and Lady Jaye are the subjects of Marie Losier’s diary/documentary, which pursues the pandrongynous partners at home, visiting MoMA’s Dada exhibition, and on tour with Thee Majesty and Throbbing Gristle.
