Winners of Jerwood/FVU Awards 2015 unveil new moving-image works


From 11 March 2015 artists Lucy Clout and Marianna Simnett, winners of the Jerwood/FVU Awards 2015, will premiere new moving-image works in an exhibition at Jerwood Space. These new works, suggested by the project title ‘What Will They See of Me?’, have been developed following the award of £20,000 commissions to each artist at the close of the first stage of the Awards in April 2014. Following its debut in London, the show will tour to CCA, Glasgow from 30 May until 12 July 2015.

Over the last year Lucy and Marianna have expanded the initial pilot ideas they presented in stage one of the Awards into even more accomplished moving-image works. Together, these projects further explore the uncertainties and ambiguities of identity in response to the curatorial brief, ‘What Will They See of Me?’. Both artists consider how images of the self are rehearsed and relayed for others, and how the faces people project to the world are complex and many-sided. In their different ways, they both ask what shapes and constitutes a ‘subject’. Identity, like destiny, is supposedly in the blood, but is also, and increasingly, in our own hands.

The Jerwood/FVU Awards 2015: ‘What Will They See of Me’, are a collaboration between Jerwood Charitable Foundation and Film and Video Umbrella (FVU) in association with CCA: Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow and University of East London, School of Arts and Digital Industries. FVU is supported by Arts Council England.
