Borrowed Time @ Jerwood Space, March 8 – April 24

7 March 2016

Two films commissioned by Jerwood/FVU Awards last year in response to the theme Borrowed Time will be shown in an exhibition of the same name at London’s Jerwood Space opening March 8 and running April 24.

There is still a couple of days until March 11 to submit a proposal to this years theme -for next year’s show –Not One Thing or Another.

The two artists who won the large awards are London based Alice May Williams and Karen Kramer and their works ‘Dream City – More, Better, Sooner’ and ‘The Eye That Articulates Belongs on Land’ will be on show within the space.

As the title of the show suggests, the work in the exhibition, alongside the videos, will look at borrowing, like putting things off, living off nothing tangible and promises of tomorrow, perhaps.

Borrowed Time will also be on show at Glasgow’s CCA in the coming summer months.

See the Jerwood webpage for more details.**

Jerwood/Film and Video Umbrella Awards are accepting applications until March 11.

The theme of the fourth commission in the award’s history is Not One Thing or Another. The two successful applicants will receive £20,000 each to realise a new film work, which will later be exhibited at London’s Jerwood Space in 2017.

The theme addresses ambiguity, not belonging fully to one single thing, being in between states. It also invites artists to think about video as a medium, about the nature of projection, resolution, focussing and hovering.

Previous winners of the award are Marianna SimnettAlice May Williams, Ed Atkins and Naheed Raza.
