London Group member

May 2, 2018

Delighted to be elected as new member of The London Group. Thanks to Genetic Moo for their nomination and kind support, and to the selection committee.

‘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.’

Marie Henderson’s Mind

December 19, 2017

‘Marie Henderson’s Mind’ is a new short 3d animated video created for a theatre production at Coronet, Elephant and Castle entitled ‘The Melodramatic Elephant in the Haunted Castle’.

‘A play was performed at the Coronet on 8 November 2017 that told the story of the building through the perspective of a Victorian actress, Marie Henderson, who ran the theatre from 1875-1880. The ghost of Marie Henderson haunted the Coronet in scenes that depicted the building as a cinema and a night club. A cast of 19 actors from the People’s Company based at Southwark Playhouse were directed by John Whelan’.

About The Schauerman Digital Art Prize – Genetic Moo

December 5, 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.

‘The main topic of AMIFF 2016

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?’
