Duncan of Jordanstone awards 2019
Sunday 24 November 2019

Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design awards: 
For the past 7 yrs two £1000 awards have been given to Masters Graduates of the Arts and Humanities course at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Dundee in order for them to further their career with residencies of their choice. This involves members of our committee perusing all applications and then interviewing the applicants at their degree show in August.

This year our awards winners were - 
Katie Potapoff- an artist from Canada whose practice considers contemporary views on writing as a response to place and landscape and is currently investigating her own personal experience of locations in Scotland known as “thin” places. This is where the barrier between this world and the spiritual or divine is considered thinner. Her award is being used to fund a residency in Iona.

Kate Bell- an artist from Scotland, recently working as the Arts Development and Marketing Officer in Birnam, has successfully gained a place on the D.J.C.A
Contemporary Art Practice Residency Programme. With the award she can now buy her own camera equipment to produce a new body of work during her residency. Her work aims to promote the use of individual imagination, looking at the physical over the digital realm. The committee look forward to seeing them again once their residencies are completed.
