‘Blend the Acclaim of your Chant with the Timbrels’ @ Jerwood Space, Jul 12

11 July 2016

The ‘Blend the Acclaim of your Chant with the Timbrels’ group event, curated by George Vasey, is on at London’s Jerwood Space on July 12.

Featuring performances, screenings and stories told by Abri de Swardt, Anneke Kampman, Quentin Lannes, Beth Kettel, Shona Macnaughton and Josh Wilson. ‘Blend the Acclaim of your Chant’ is a part of Jerwood Staging Series, a wider effort to contextualise and present several event-based exhibitions by emerging artists.

Ranging from a video piece that explores the disembodied characters in the world of virtual boxing by Lannes, (‘The Next Round’ (2016)), to a cumulative performance of “the perfect school girl” by Macnaughton and De Swardt’s new film, ‘Ridder Thirst’ —incorporating a dense narrative lapsing between English and Afrikaans— the event seems to present itself things that layer.

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.

Tomorrow Never Knows @ Jerwood Space reviewed.

Tomorrow Never Knows. Tale of Two Videos.
22 January 2013

Right now, the prevalence of HD video is a focus in contemporary art and Southwark’s Jerwood Space is ideal for looking at the way emerging practitioners are using the medium. Tomorrow Never Knows (The Jerwood Film and Video Awards) presents us with a story of twos. There are two artists, Ed Atkins and Naheed Raza, and their two films, ‘Warm, Warm, Warm Spring Mouths’ (2013) and ‘Frozen in Time’ (2013), respectively. They’re presented at an exhibition based on the completion of a two-year cycle, which has seen four moving-image artists compete for the bursary and commissioning fund of £56,000 from Film and Video Umbrella.
