DescriptionThe Jerwood/FVU Awards 2022 premieres two newly commissioned moving-image installations by early-career artists Soojin Chang and Michael., the recipients of the eighth edition of the awards.
Soojin Chang’s BXBY is a year-long performance project that merges forms of semi-fictional documentary and ritual practice, that follows Chang as a hybrid, shape-shifting being trying to learn to reproduce.
Michael.’s cleave to the Black echoes the art-historical tradition of the painted triptych in a three-screen video projection that offers a panoramic perspective on the legacies of the past that continue to leave an indelible mark on contemporary Black male experience.
The Jerwood/FVU Awards 2022 are a collaboration between Jerwood Arts and Film and Video Umbrella, in a new partnership with Leeds Art Gallery. They were established in 2012 in response to a need for significant major commissions for early-career moving-image artists, the awards contribute to an ongoing dialogue around urgent or timely concerns within moving-image.
