Artists Larry Achiampong, Mark Essen and Nicola Singh have been selected for the second edition of 3-Phase, a unique development initiative led by Jerwood Charitable Foundation, through its gallery programme Jerwood Visual Arts; Eastside Projects, Birmingham and WORKPLACE, Gateshead.

About

The selected artists, each at pivotal moments in their career, have demonstrated a commitment to challenging and pushing the boundaries of traditional modes of exhibition making. Inherent to their respective proposals is a strong research-base and pertinent social narratives, which surface through sculpture, performance and technology.

Larry Achiampong will present Relic Traveller - a new multi-disciplinary project manifesting in performance, audio, moving image and prose. Taking place across various landscapes and locations, the piece builds upon a postcolonial perspective informed by technology, agency and the body, and narratives of migration.

Mark Essen will present a new body of work exploring values of our archaic economy and offering suggestions of an alternative structure – specifically degrowth – a political, economic and social movement based on ecological economics. By incorporating hydroponics into the work, the artist communicates how urban agriculture may be used as a form of resilience, redressing the balance with nature. 

Nicola Singh will continue to find ways of writing via performance and through experiments in pedagogy. She is interested in the organisation of language around the body and in relation to the voice. Her work will take the form of a multifaceted performance, including live readings, experimental music and dialogue with other artists. She will also produce an installation and series of performative objects for her performance, feeling through ideas around exhibiting performance in the context of the gallery. 

Visit Jerwood Space, London, between 11 Nov and 10 Dec to see the artists' proposals begin to take shape.
