About the Jerwood/FVU Awards 2022

The Jerwood/FVU Awards 2022 premieres two newly commissioned moving-image works by artists Soojin Chang and Michael..

For these commissions, both artists have approached ideas of kinship, creation and inclusion. Soojin Chang’s film BXBY is a radical, semi-fictional work which explores the fusion of interspecies life, and Michael.’s film cleave to the BLACK depicts through the form of a moving-image triptych, the continuing legacy of Black male experience.

 

Visitor Guidance

Content note: BXBY contains graphic reproductive content, direct reference to terminated pregnancy and imagery of the culling and dissection of a deer.
