The art that Luke Willis Thompson makes is daunting, and dense, and his most recent work is no exception. Produced as the result of a two-year residency at the Chisenhale Gallery in London, and comprising the entirety of his first solo show in the United Kingdom, autoportrait (2017) is a silent, 35mm film in black and white that continues the larger project of Thompson’s practice – the bracing address of trauma as it is racialized.
