Congratulations to the 2019 recipients

Remi Allen

Chelsea College of Arts

To further enhance her research regarding the female form, Remi intends to produce a body of work that explores female mythic imagery and representation. The myth of the Vagina Dentata has origins in several ancient cultures – Remi’s work aims to visualise the myth, from a non-white feminist slant.

Karl Foster

Chelsea College of Arts

Karl will explore the Roman/Greek plaster cast as emblem of aesthetic values and pedagogical methodologies that may be distantly reverberating with the objects he has been making as part of his developing research.

Elin Karlsson

London College of Communication

Weaving fictional writing, theory and creative works together in a practice that is rooted in the domestic, Elin will work on an expanded methodology for understanding domestic photographic practices, with a focus on connectivity across the Mediterranean.
