MALENE HARMAN RASMUSSEN WINS JERWOOD MAKERS OPEN 2015
The Jerwood Makers Open promotes the significance of making and materials within the visual arts arena. It seeks to support exceptional skill and imagination, looking broadly at how contemporary artists are defining or challenging the boundaries of what has traditionally been described as applied arts.
On the submission process and final selection, the panel commented: ‘Whittling down the finalists from this year’s record number of entries was genuinely tough. In the end the five chosen displayed a high level of technical skill combined with imagination and intellectual adventure. They are all attempting to take their practice in a new direction. 2015’s Jerwood Makers Open promises to be an exhilarating exhibition.’
