Light Reading Series 6: Further 2 Residency Artists

FURTHER 2 is a three month, part time, moving image residency for three London-based visual artists interested in developing film based projects. The residency provides a period of research, experimentation and development, without the pressure of having a fixed outcome. It includes bespoke workshops, a materials budget and year-long membership of no.w.here artists' film and video lab.

Knitting A Frame (Jennifer Nightingale, 2006)

Helene Martin studied History at the Universite du Maine, Le Mans, France (1992-96), completed her MA at the Royal College of Art in 2005. She has exhibited and taken part in film festivals both nationally and internationally. Helene was shortlisted for the Jerwood Drawing Prize in 2005 and will showing work as part of 'Starting from Scratch’ in Rotterdam this February.

Jennifer Nightingale explores the relationships between the control of the filmmaking process and the gestures of the filmmaker. She studied for her BA from KIAD in Canterbury, and graduated with an MFA from the Slade School of Fine Art. During the residency Jennifer’s practice has dealt with the privileging of formal units to elude, to signify, or take the place of movement as an expressive gesture, where whole sequences of movement have been reduced to several precise parts or poses.

Ruth Proctor’s practice spans installation, drawing and photography, and she has recently started to use film in relation to these. Her work deals with ideas coming from music, performance, and the spectacle of sporting events. Since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2005, Ruth has had solo shows at Hollybush Gardens, London, and Center project space in Berlin.

Light Reading is an on-going series of critical dialogues that engage artists, writers and curators in conversation around a selected artist’s body of work. The series is taking a February break but will restart in March 2007. To be included on the mailing list please contact courses@nowhere-lab.org
