arianna Simnett at the Acme Project Space, the artist's first solo exhibition, is the culmination of the year-long Adrian Carruthers Studio Award. The exhibition presents a selection of Simnett's most recent work, through which the artist explores themes of sexuality, innocence, corruption and martyrdom.

The centrepiece of the exhibition is 'The Udder', a short film commissioned as part of the Jerwood/Film and Video Umbrella Awards 2014. Contextualising this film within a wider practice are 'Noses Off', a series of graphite drawings of disembodied noses, and 'Ryan's Hymen', a pencil drawing on MDF board depicting a piece of jewellery given to the artist by her first boyfriend.

Words by Patrick Langley

Established in 2002 for artists graduating from The Slade School of Art, the Adrian Carruthers Award provides a free studio for a year, plus a bursary of £6,000. The award was created in memory of the artist Adrian Carruthers, who died in October 2001 at the age of 40.
