Bringing together the six artists shortlisted for the 2021 Film London Jarman Award – Adham Faramawy, Georgina Starr, Guy Oliver, Jasmina Cibic, Larry Achiampong and Sophia Al-Maria – this weekend gives you the opportunity to view their films alongside a special live online programme that explores their different practices through talks and performances.
In partnership with Film London Artists’ Moving Image Network.
Larry Achiampong’s solo and collaborative projects employ aural and visual archives, live performance and sound to explore ideas surrounding class, cross-cultural and post-digital identity. Achiampong’s work examines his communal and personal heritage. Achiampong has exhibited, performed and presented projects at Tate Modern; Venice Biennale; Somerset House and Liverpool Biennial.
Sophia Al-Maria’s cinematic videos explore, postcolonial identity, imperialism, and counter-histories weaving together music, literature, oral history, film and dance. Her fractured, nonlinear works is often cast against a science fiction backdrop and explores the revision of history, the isolation of individuals through technology, and the corrosive elements of consumerism and industry. Solo exhibitions include Garage, Moscow; Whitechapel Gallery and Whitney Museum New York.
With a practice spanning performance, installation and film, Jasmina Cibic considers how ideologies and cultures are constructed and then framed through mechanisms such as art and architecture. Her work explores the construction of national culture and how it can be used for political aims, and looks at forms of soft power. Jasmina represented Slovenia at the 55th Venice Biennial and has had solo exhibitions at BALTIC, Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead.
Adham Faramawy works across a wide variety of media from computer programmes, moving image and apps to print. Their performance for camera videos are often installed as part of sculptural assemblages. The works consider how social issues become entangled with environmental issues. Using movement, poetry, spoken word, and dance they tell stories about consumption, identity construction, the body and the nature of desire. Adham has had a solo exhibition at Bluecoat Liverpool and has screened at both Tate Britain and Tate Modern.
Guy Oliver’s moving image work is rooted within a framework of self-portraiture, and explores notions of masculinity, identity, comedy and tragedy, taking a highly personal but irreverent working approach. The work integrates and then dissects areas of popular culture: cinema, sport, politics, popular music, stand-up comedy and art history act as the recurring subject matter. Recent presentations include Jerwood/FVU Awards 2020, London and Art Night.
Georgina Starr makes videos, sound and large-scale installation works with a focus on female identity, the otherworldly, and her longstanding interests in the visionary aspects of experimental cinema. Her projects are initiated by extensive periods of research that always involve some form of writing—scripts, fictions, lectures, scores and poetry. Recent solo presentations include Leeds Art Gallery and Glasgow International.
