Frozen but with warm mouths
tomorrow never knows, jerwood space, film and video umbrella
Ed Atkin's 'Warm, Warm, Warm Spring Mouths', 2013.


Video artists Ed Atkins and Naheed Raza found themselves the newly commissioned participants in Jerwood's 'Tomorrow Never Knows' exhibition.. After being selected by a shortlist of four in the Film and Video Umbrella Awards, they were both given 20,000 to develop their creative ideas into finished works, which are now on display at Jerwood Space until the 24th February.

Jerwood Space proves an interesting environment to display the work, as it makes you to consider the way we encounter moving images in the context of a crowd compared within private view. The short films are screened individually in two separate, but identical blacked-out rooms. First is Naheed Raza's Frozen in Time. In the film, The artist, who has trained in medicine, investigates the practice of cryopreservation, in which the body is frozen after death in hopes to be resuscitated in the future. The film portrays a clinical, if somewhat sceptical view of the process.

In the next room you can watch Ed Atkins' Warm, Warm, Warm Spring Mouths. It is an animated short filmed in high-definition and portrays a man submerged in water, while speaking in fragmented manner.
