This publication accompanies the Jerwood/FVU Awards 2016, for which emerging artists Karen Kramer and Alice May Williams were commissioned to create major new works. The artists’ works respond in different ways to the theme of ‘Borrowed Time’, with its allusion to escalating levels of personal and national debt and a wider feeling of economic unease or ecological threat caused by our exploitation of natural resources and the impact it has on the environment.
With dedicated texts by Steven Bode and an essay by Laurence Scott, the publication probes these ideas and explores the ways in which the theme resonates with the new works by Kramer and Williams.
The Jerwood/FVU Awards are a collaboration between Jerwood Charitable Foundation and FVU in association with CCA, Glasgow and University of East London.
