New fund launched to buy moving image work

The Art Fund in partnership with Thomas Dane Gallery has launched the Moving Image Fund for Museums in order to support the acquisition of artists’  film and video works by museums.

The first two galleries to benefit from the fund are Towner Art Gallery in Eastbourne and Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester. The scheme, which is currently in its pilot phase, will provide £200,000 to each gallery over the next two years.

Jane Wheat

In 2013 Jane Wheat was selected, from a region-wide submission, to show 'Nest' in the Nottingham Castle Open.

As this 'Open' is one of our 'locals' (it takes place just up the road from where is put together) and because we worked with the Open to help out a little with information for artists on how to prepare work for submission, we wanted to select one of the artists in the show to feature here.  Jane is that artist. 

She works with drawn marks as well as video and, apart from images of her mark-making you can view one of her videos using the link at the bottom of the page.

Working intuitively, the process initially takes precedence over the outcome. The physical engagement with support and mark making tool creates an intimacy and immediacy. Each line drawn echoes the last. A test of physical endurance and concentration, the repetition, layering and accumulation of lines unfolding to form mesh like structures.

Tonle Sap (stills)

An interest in the ritualistic characteristics of cultural events has underpinned an ongoing project focusing on a unique natural phenomenon, the reversal of the flow of Cambodia’s Tonle Sap River. The work explores the auspicious nature of the ceremony and celebrations surrounding the river. The film stills are taken from the video piece, ‘Tonle Sap’ which can be accessed here.

More information about Jane's practice and images/videos of her work can be found on her website:
