The winners of the EXPOSURE 13 Award are Nicole Buning, Scarlett Lingwood and Luana Duvoisin Zanchi, all graduates of Goldsmiths, University of London. Now in its fifth year, EXPOSURE Award is recognised as a prestigious prize that provides winning graduates from a British art school the opportunity to exhibit within a professional gallery context.

Nicole Buning’s animated film Meanwhile, elsewhere investigates our relationship to space. Translating urban cityscapes and pasture landscapes into delicate miniature paper forms, the viewer is prompted to consider the centrality of their own body as their vehicle for perception. Meanwhile, elsewhere includes music by Niklas Stade, drummer of the band Neufundland.

Scarlett Lingwood presents an installation, Untitled. This includes a large-scale drawing, a photograph and audio, which approach the themes of mapping, ambiguity and orienting oneself. Luana Duvoisin Zanchi’s work gives a quietly obsessive attention to materials. Her installation deals with the grasping of things in and through the body. It is a persistent effort to make approaches to a moment that is both gone and that remains as a conviction of experience.

The judging panel for the EXPOSURE 13 Award comprised of Professor Michael Archer, Director of BA Fine Art at Goldsmiths College, and Ziba Ardalan, Director/Curator of Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art.

The artists will be exhibiting alongside world renowned Iran born, American artist Siah Armajani, whose exhibition, Siah Armajani: An Ingenious World is also on display at Parasol unit, until 15 December.

The annual EXPOSURE Award celebrates the development of young art school graduates and gives them an opportunity to expose their work to an international audience. Each year, Parasol unit collaborates with a different art school from which a judging panel selects up to three graduates to present a month-long exhibition at Parasol unit.
