Jerwood/FVU Awards 2016: ‘Borrowed Time’ is an exhibition of two moving image works: The Eye That Articulates Belongs On Land by Karen Kramer and Dream City – More, Better, Sooner by Alice May Williams, installed at Jerwood Space, London from 9 March to 24 April and at CCA, Glasgow from 28 May to 10 July 2016. I invited each artist to record a radio show with a view to focusing on their use of sound – the second discussion with Karen Kramer aired on Resonance FM on 19 April and considered the use of field recordings and the attention given by Kramer to breath and voice in the troubling of the distinction between the natural and the manmade, the human and the animal.
