Click to enlargeJERWOOD/FVU AWARDS 2017 : NEITHER ONE THING OR ANOTHER
Mar 22 - May 14, 2017
Two new moving-image commissions by early career artists Patrick Hough and Lawrence Lek made in response to the curatorial theme Neither One Thing or Another.
 
Patrick Hough’s work, And If In A Thousand Years, takes us to the Californian desert, where the landscape was filmed and digitally scanned using LiDAR, to host a Hollywood-inspired merging of authenticity and replica.
 
Lawrence Lek’s work, Geomancer, harnesses his trademark – the building blocks of computer gaming technology – to set the stage for an awakening of artificial intelligence. This computer-generated ghost in the machine discovers its own autonomy, and ponders the range and limits of its post-human powers of creativity.

HOLLY GRAHAM, SWEET SWOLLEN
May 8 - Aug 25, 2018
Sweet Swollen is a new commission by Holly Graham. Comprising print and audio, these consider historic links between domestic culinary culture and visual culture within Europe.The works take as their starting point a pair of Meissen porcelain sweetmeat bowls that are currently on display in a collection in the Victoria and Albert Museum. These were made between 1765–75 and would have, at the time of their production, been considered an artisanal, luxury good, symbolizing the wealth and status of their owner. Visually, they each depict turfy mounds which prop up bowls to hold sugar or sweetened dried fruits, which are in turn flanked by caricatured ‘blackamoor’ figures who gesture towards the food products in the bowls in front of them. These are part of a wider tradition of similar figurines that embody, and silently testify to, financial gain through processes of colonial exploitation.

New works by Rob Crosse, Susie Green and Georgia Horgan presented as three solo presentations at Jerwood Space.
