Jerwood/Photoworks Awards 2015
Each artist has received an award of £5,000 to support the making of new work for exhibition, with a significant production fund and mentoring support. The three artists will present their work in a group exhibition as part of the Jerwood Visual Arts programme which will open at Jerwood Space in November 2015 and tour to other partner venues including Impressions Gallery, Bradford.
Joanna Piotrowska (b1985 Poland) received an MA in Photography from the RCA in 2013. In 2014 Joanna was awarded the MACK First Book Award and in 2013 exhibited for Bloomberg New Contemporaries and Family Politics at Jerwood Space, London. She will be showing at Media Space, London in March 2015.
For her Jerwood/Photoworks Awards project, Joanna will continue her interest in exploring psychotherapeutic methods such as process-oriented psychology as a framework to examine how socio-political factors affect people in their private lives and personal sphere. Through focusing on the perpetual state of anxiety within modern society, she hopes to uncover the unconscious, long lasting consequences of historical events intertwining with the current climate of potential catastrophe and unseen threat.
