THE 2016 AWARD RECIPIENT JOHN LAWRENCE IS DEVELOPING AN AMBITIOUS PROJECT TO BE PRESENTED IN CARDIFF LATER THIS YEAR.

AFTER AN OVERWHELMING RESPONSE TO THE CALL FOR PROPOSALS, AND A LIVELY SHORTLISTING PROCESS, THE KFA SELECTED LONDON-BASED ARTIST, CURATOR AND PRODUCER JOHN LAWRENCE AS THE 2016 AWARDEE.

Lawrence’s work centres around questioning how our increasingly mediated experience of the world can impact upon what could be described as a ‘collective psyche’. He works extensively with large-scale video installation, and takes an experimental approach that often incorporates collaboration with actors and musicians.

“I’m extremely excited to be working with the KFA team to develop a new project for public display in Cardiff later in the year. The KFA represents a refreshingly open and supportive opportunity for artists and through it I have already been encouraged to think big and get ambitious with my ideas towards this new body of work” - JOHN LAWRENCE

We'll be developing an archive section to this site soon so you can see what you missed in 2015. In the meantime here's a video of Sacred Danger, the inaugural KFA project from Uliana Apatina. Or you can read about it on Vice.
