ARTiculation 2013 comes to a close

The finalists with adjudicator Tim Llewellyn OBE

The ARTiculation Prize Final 2013 was held on Saturday March 9th at Clare College, Cambridge to a full auditorium.  Students from a variety of schools attended a morning lecture by Professor Griselda Pollock, University of Leeds and had tours of the University by undergraduates, with the ARTiculation Prize Finals 2013 in the afternoon.

First prize was awarded to Molly Nickson from Townley Grammar, Kent. Molly spoke passionately about a Henry Moore sculpture, ‘Knife Edge’, which sits in Greenwich Park in London.  Second place was awarded to Victoria Oshinusi from Badminton School, who gave a sophisticated talk about ‘Betty’ 1988 by Gerhard Richter. Third prize was won by Zoe Lakota-Baldwin from University College School, Hampstead, with her fascinating talk about ‘The Upper Room’ by Chris Ofili.

Tim Llewellyn judged the finalists and was very impressed by the standard and delivery of all the talks. We have had many positive comments, from students, teachers and guests regarding the day.

Laura Ford Workshops                         

Tuesday 19th March

Laura Ford led creative workshops to explore the themes of her practice and in particular relating to her recent exhibition at Roche Court, Laura Ford: Days of Judgement, from 24 November 2012 –3 February 2013. Key ideas within Ford’s work were explored through improvisation and Laura was joined by Theatre Artist Lorna Rees to deliver the content of what proved to be a  fast-moving workshop filled with practical exercises that stimulated a great deal of critical thought.

In the workshops students  looked at how you can express emotions such as ‘anxiety’ and ‘shame’ through movement and how the body may be used to create inspiration for shape within their own artwork. A brief introduction to Beatnik poetry and tableau was included to be used as inspiration in student’s own work.

Roche Court Educational Trust invited students to examine the creative links between visual art and theatre through Laura Ford’s exhibition and were very excited to offer such a wonderful opportunity to work first hand with such an exciting artist.

Students from Harrow Way Community School took up this wonderful opportunity and all had a very successful day.
