LONDON.- Jasmina Cibic has won the 2021 Film London Jarman Award, it was announced this evening at a special event at Regent Street Cinema.
Jasmina Cibic works across moving image, sculpture, immersive installation and performance. Her stylish, theatrical work tackles important global issues including national identity, nation building, soft power and European relations. Set in monumental architectural locations from Oscar Niemeyers French Communist Party Headquarters in Paris to the Palace of Nations in Geneva, Cibic uses actual transcripts of real political debates and speeches to form the dialogue of her filmworks. Cibic frequently uses dance performance in her film works, and has collaborated with choreographers and dancers on several projects, including Nada and The Gift.
In her 2019 2021 work, The Gift, Cibic presents an allegorical tale, a competition between an Artist, a Diplomat and an Engineer to determine which of the arts would be the most likely to heal a divided scociety. The candidates are interviewed by four women who represent the four freedoms listed by Roosevelt in his Four Freedoms speech of 1940 - Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Worship, Freedom from Want and Freedom From Fear. The Gift explores particular historic examples of political gifts of architecture, art, music and dance and untangles the seductive and sinister nature of the crossovers between culture and politics. In her work Nada (2016 18), Cibic examines three of European modernisms star architects and the role their work has played in national representation during decisive moments in European history. These include Vjenceslav Richters unrealised design for the Yugoslav Pavilion at the Brussels World Exhibition in 1958, Arne Jacobsens Aarhus City Hall (1937-1942) and Mies van der Rohes Krefeld architecture of the 1920s.
Jamina Cibic has shown work at Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Cooper Gallery, Dundee, DHC/ART Fondation pour lart contemporain, Montreal and MOCA, Belgrade. She represented Slovenia at the 55th Venice Biennale and recently had a major solo show at mac Lyon.
Jamina Cibic was born in in Ljublijana in 1979 and now lives and works in London.
Jasmina Cibic was chosen from a distinguished shortlist of artists including Adham Faramawy, Georgina Starr, Guy Oliver, Larry Achiampong and Sophia Al-Maria.
Jasmina Cibic receives £10,000 prize money.
Members of the Jury said: It was our almost impossible task to select just six artists from what was truly a cinematic feast. The artists we selected are characterized by their audio-visual sophistication, their urgent narratives and the reflection they inspire on the nature of subjectivity, history and memory. They were all the more vivid for being seen in lockdown. Altogether, these six artists represent an astonishing zeitgeist, a state of the art of moving image today. I know that my fellow jurors would like to join me in expressing our congratulations to Jasmina, and all those shortlisted for the 2021 Award.
The 2021 Film London Jarman Award was presented by artist and filmmaker John Akomfrah.
Adrian Wootton, Chief Executive of Film London and the British Film Commission said: After the adversity faced over the past year, it is vital that we continue to protect and support artists to challenge perceptions, push creative practices and have their voices and those of the communities they represent - heard. Now in its fourteenth year and excitedly returning as a physical event as well as an online presentation accessible to audiences across the UK, we are thrilled to be able to spotlight six incredible artists who truly reflect the spirit of Jarman, celebrating experimentation, imagination and innovation. Our congratulations go to Jasmina and indeed all of the shortlisted artists we look forward to seeing what the future holds for them. A sincere thank you goes to our funders, Arts Council England, returning partner Whitechapel Gallery and our Film London Jarman Award Patrons for all their on-going support.
