Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art is delighted to present the
winners of the EXPOSURE 11 Award\, Jack Friswell\, Kate Shepherd
strong> and Rebecca Turner\, all graduates of Wimb
ledon College of Art. Already in its third year\, the EXPOSURE Awa
rd has gained ever increasing recognition and proved to be of great benefit
to previous winners by giving the graduates from a UK art school an opport
unity to exhibit work in a professional context. Showing alongside Yang Fud
ong\, the main exhibition at Parasol unit\, and coinciding with the Frieze
Art Fair\, their work will benefit from exposure to an international audien
ce. For the 2011 EXPOSURE 11 Award\, Parasol unit has collaborated with the
Wimbledon College of Art.
Jack Friswell (BA Fine Art: Print and Time-based Media ) explores notions of the cinematic and the artefact\, working somewhere be tween documenting and oddity. Influenced by ethnographical studies and arch etypes of architecture and landscape\, he is interested in the anachronism of the projection screen as an object of visual and critical enquiry. Throu gh introspective study\, his images become the catalyst for critique via th e geographical displacement of the screen and its construction.
Kate Shepherd (BA Fine Art: Painting) is interested in the politics of place – the social\, historical context of the urban environment. Concerned with the city’s effe ct on memory\, she uses layering and texture in her paintings to mimic the archaeological levels of the cityscape. Structural lines within the works m ove the eye between invented and existent space. In White Palace aerial vie ws of the White House face Buckingham Palace in a form that is between figu ration and abstraction.
Rebecca Turner (BA Fine Art: Sculpture) explores the rela tionship between space and what occupies it\, and is particularly intereste d in the disruption of patterns of movement. Her large astronomical forms w hich she associates in unlikely ways to the surrounding objects and archite cture can be somewhat baffling. Like a mysterious or unworldly invasion the se often spherical anomalies\, while playing with gravitational limitations \, interrupt the ease of an apparently predetermined trajectory. The viewer must negotiate their unavoidable presence wherever they are clinging\, anc hored like some parasitic creature feeding off our architecture.
The judging panel for the 2011 EXPOSURE award were Katie Pratt\, Painting Pathway Leader\; Lois Rowe\, Print and Time-based Media Pathway Leader\; Sarah Woodfine\, Sc ulpture Pathway Leader\; and Ziba Ardalan\, Director/Curator of Parasol uni t foundation for contemporary art.
