An exhibition of the four films commissioned for the first stage of the Jerwood/Film and Video Umbrella Awards: ‘What Will They See of Me? opens to the public today. Over the course of the past six months artists Lucy Clout, Kate Cooper, Anne Haaning and Marianna Simnett have produced the following films from which two artists will then be selected to develop their ideas further as part of the second stage of this annual award.
Each of the artists have approached the theme with remarkably distinct approaches pertaining to their ongoing practice interests. Over the next few weeks I will be speaking to the artists and writing about their works here on the blog, please stay tuned for updates.
