Delighted to be elected as new member of The London Group.

Many thanks to the selection committee.

The London Group

‘The London Group is a thriving democratic artists’ collective practicing in all disciplines, from painting and sculpture to moving image, digital and performance, with a full annual events programme in London and beyond – the Group regularly shows abroad. The London Group currently holds many of its events at The Cello Factory, Waterloo, London.

The UK’s longest-running and most prestigious artists’ collective
The London Group was set up in 1913 by thirty two artists including Walter Sickert, Jacob Epstein, Wyndham Lewis, David Bomberg, and Henri Gaudier Brzeska, with the aim of creating a powerful artist-run group to act as a counter-balance to institutions such as the Royal Academy. The founding group created a unique structure for an organisation, that has gone on to successfully nurture the careers of many of Britain’s best-known artists.’

About The Schauerman Digital Art Prize – Genetic Moo

December 05 2017//

I’m really delighted to be awarded The Schauerman Digital Art Prize for my video remote city [skygardens_towers] exhibited as part of The London Group Open 2017!

The Schauerman Digital Art Prize is a new prize and part of The London Group Open 2017

The prize went to Sandra Crisp for her experimental video work Remote City (skygardens_towers) which pans through elevated levels of a fragmented and futuristic city featuring sky gardens, and empty high-rise towers that humans appear to have left behind. She says the “hybrid models are textured with borrowed / downloaded visuals and smartphone-camera stills, embedded into their multi-faceted surfaces.” Sandra’s piece is both playful and dark and a really skilful use of 3d and video. We love it.

The selected artwork was shown as part of the London Group Open in November 2017 and the winner received £500. All forms of digital art were considered including video, still image, sound, 3D, web, game art, interactive, installation, VR, electronics, robotics, etc…

This prize is selected by London Group members Genetic Moo (Nicola Schauerman and Tim Pickup). Nicola’s parents, Marie & John Schauerman, were creative throughout their lives and excited by new technology. This award is in memory of their enthusiasm and support.

Arctic Moving Image and Film Festival, Norway

October 10 2016//

Auroville Dream (Tales from the City)  has been selected as part of an open call for Arctic Moving Image and Film Festival (AMIFF) Harstad, Norway. The screening of open call films will take place Harstad Kino, Saturday 29 October.

Festival dates: 27- 30 October 2016, Harstad Kino, Harstad, Norway.

The theme of the first festival is ‘Memory and Identity’. The relatively short history of film is now starting to measure up to a considerable size, and our identity is intertwined by film. Questions like ‘how does movements in film history reflect on movements in society?’, ‘how do we understand ourselves through film and moving images and its history?’ and ‘How are memories and identity treated in film and moving images?’ will be explored.

The theme ‘Memory and Identity’ is inspired by the strong focus currently on the use of archive material in moving images today. Topics for discussions that springs out of this are fact and fiction, power and powerlessness. Who gets their stories told? Can art function as democratization of archive material?’
