Jerwood Space, 171 Union Street, London, Se1 0LN
Matthew Finn, Joanna Piotrowska and Tereza Zelenkova
A group exhibition of new photography enabled by the first national Jerwood/Photoworks Awards will open at Jerwood Space London, 4 November - 13 December 2015, touring to Impressions Gallery, Bradford 5 January - 19 March 2016.
Three artists were selected from a call for applications to UK based photography practitioners within ten years of establishing their practice. Each has received an award of £5,000 to support the making of new work for this exhibition, with a significant production fund and advice from a pool of thirteen Mentors including Alec Soth, Gillian Wearing, Broomberg & Chanarin and Michael Mack as well as curatorial advice from both of the award giving organisations.
Matthew Finn has been photographing his mother in a series of collaborative portraits since 1987. His Jerwood/Photoworks Award has enabled him to revisit this series at an emotional time that has seen his mother move from her family home into an assisted living residence. Matthew’s mother’s mental health has changed her role in the portraits from active participant to one of an observed subject; shifting the focus of his images towards objects and metaphor.
Joanna Piotrowska’s work explores anxiety and the effects of global and political events on the individual. Counteracting the passive role encouraged of adolescent girls, Joanna has enlisted young women to recreate poses from self-defence manuals. Her Jerwood/Photoworks Award has also enabled a research trip to Nagorno Karabakh - a conflict zone on the Armenian and Azerbaijani border. Joanna was prevented by the authorities from photographing the abandoned city but needed to take photographs to prove herself an artist rather than a spy. She turned her gaze away from the forbidden ruins and towards the many rosebushes found in the city – adding an extra layer of symbolism to the flowers.
Tereza Zelenkova has travelled to her native Czech Republic to explore themes of history, local legend and folklore. Tereza’s Jerwood/Photoworks Award enabled her to visit numerous locations, but the resulting images seem themselves out of place and time. Her eerily beautiful, black and white photographs of woodlands, stone structures and relics form their own dream-like, subconscious world, where stories fuel the viewer’s interpretation.

Jerwood Space, 171 Union Street, London, Se1 0LN
The Jerwood Drawing Prize is the largest and longest running annual open exhibition for drawing in the UK.
Selected from original drawings, the Jerwood Drawing Prize has established a reputation for its commitment to championing excellence, and to promoting and celebrating the breadth of contemporary drawing practice within the UK. The exhibition provides a platform to showcase the work of drawing practitioners, from student to established, and as a project helps to define a wider understanding of the role and value of drawing in creative practice. The longevity of the Prize, which has been running since 1994, is a testament to the appetite of the artists who make drawings, and the continued interest of audiences visiting the exhibition, making it one of the most popular shows in the Jerwood Visual Arts programme.
The artists selected for exhibition, now in the running for the prestigious Prize, are:
Elisa Alaluusua, Ian Andrews, Robert Battams, Frances Blane, Hannah Blight-Anderson, Pia Bramley, Pete Burke, John Close, Julie Cockburn, Daniel Crawshaw, Gerry Davies, Cinzia Delnevo, Sammy Dent, Emma Douglas, Bryan Eccleshall, Pennie Elfick, Susan England, Exchange + Draw, Mark Farhall, Craig Fisher, Nina Fowler, Thomas Gosebruch, Thomas Harrison, Roland Hicks, William Hughes, Julia Hutton, Mehr Javed, Ben Johnson, Ali Kayley, Nigel Kingsbury, Lois Langmead, Gary Lawrence, Juliette Losq, William Mackrell, Sean Maltby, Grace McMurray, Anouk Mercier, Mary Millner, Joonhong Min, Paul Peden, Lee John Phillips, Ruth Philo, Giulia Ricci, Annette Robinson, Jenny Ross, Gabriela Schutz, Sarah Seymour, Caroline Shadbolt.

A total of 60 works by 58 artists, including one collaboration, have been carefully selected for exhibition by the panel; Dexter Dalwood, artist; Salima Hashmi, artist, curator and writer; and John-Paul Stonard, art historian.
Date26/06/2015Jerwood Makers Open 2015
10 July - 30 August 2015
Jerwood Space, 171 Union Street, London, SE1 0LN
On 10 July 2015 five exciting new talents in contemporary applied arts will premiere works in a group exhibition to mark the fifth edition of Jerwood Makers Open. Zachary Eastwood-Bloom, Malene Hartmann Rasmussen, Jasleen Kaur, Ian McIntyre and Silo Studio each received awards of £7,500 at the end of 2014 to realise significant new projects, with the resulting works debuting at Jerwood Space in London before touring nationally.
Jerwood Makers Open promotes the significance of making and materials within the visual arts arena, seeking to support exceptional skill and imagination. It looks broadly at how contemporary artists are defining or challenging the boundaries of what has traditionally been described as applied arts. Over the past five years the initiative has awarded commissioning funds totalling £180,000 directly to artists. This has supported 24 major new commissions, offering a rare opportunity for artists to freely develop creative ideas central to their individual practices.
