Jerwood/Film and Video Umbrella Awards What Will They See Of Me?

Fri 4 April — Mon 21 April 2014

What Will They See Of Me?

The four moving image artists selected for the second edition of the Jerwood/Film and Video Umbrella Awards are Lucy Clout, Kate Cooper, Anne Haaning and Marianna Simnett.

In response to the curatorial brief and its title What Will They See of Me?, their four proposals explore the themes of identity, visibility and posterity in ways that both embrace and interrogate new technology and express a strong and compelling performative impulse.

The project considers the importance we continue to attach to individual expressions of personal identity, at a time when we all produce and consume so many images that it is hard for any more than a few of them to stand out from the crowd. As more and more photographs, videos and web clips go into circulation, and compete for our attention, which will be the ones that will make it through to the future, and what, in turn, might the future make of them?

The Jerwood/Film and Video Umbrella Awards: What Will They See of Me?, are a collaboration between Jerwood Charitable Foundation and Film and Video Umbrella in association with CCA, and supported by University of East London, School of Arts and Digital Industries. Film and Video Umbrella is supported by Arts Council England.
