About Jerwood/Photoworks Awards 4
Jerwood/Photoworks Awards 4 presents two major new commissions by Heather Agyepong and Joanne Coates.
In developing these commissions, both artists have gone on a personal journey with their practice; reaching beyond photography, to implement activism, sociology, philosophy, archiving, and cultural studies in their work. In ego death, Heather Agyepong explores the concept of the shadow self, our unconscious personality that we deem unacceptable and therefore repress. Joanne Coates’s The Lie of the Land delves into the social history of the land, narrating a story of gender and class in relation to the countryside of the North East of England.
The Jerwood/Photoworks Awards are a major commissioning opportunity supporting early-career artists working with photography to make new work and significantly develop their practice. Established in 2014, they support UK-based artists who are within one to ten years of beginning their practice to realise ambitious new works. The awards seek to encourage artists exploring new approaches to photography by providing sustained critical, practical and curatorial support.
