We are delighted to announce the winners of the Public Art (Now) travel bursaries to attend the event at the Whitechapel Gallery on Thursday 16 April.

We were overwhelmed by the quality of responses we received from across the UK and Europe. After a lot of deliberation amongst the team here at Situations we finally managed to select just two very worthy winners.

The two successful applicants are Hermione Spriggs and Katy Beinart.

Hermione’s work as an artist and writer explores experience from the perspective of other species. Informed by ethnographic fieldwork with fox trappers in urban and rural England, Spriggs borrows from the ritual/sensory/sculptural techniques of hunters and trap-setters who mediate between the worlds of human and animal.  “I hope the Whitechapel event is bold enough to seriously challenge the limitations of ‘site’ and ‘public art’, and explode what we currently understand to be possible within this nomenclature.”

Katy Beinart trained as an architect at the Bartlett, UCL and Oxford Brookes, going on to develop an artistic practice that engages with the public realm and includes installations, performance and participatory works. Her work explores links between material culture, migration, memory, and place.

Tickets for the Public Art (Now) talk at Whitechapel Gallery are available here.

Out of Time, Out of Place: Public Art (Now) is priced at £29.99 and available to buy here.
