Six emerging UK artists selected for artistic residencies
The British Council is delighted to announce participants for its new SWAP: UK/Ukraine Artist Residency Programme. Six talented UK-based artists will take part in various residence programmes during the summer. The selected artists are Harriet Fleuriot, Jin He Park, Jamie Fitzpatrick, Sarah Lippett, Vaughan Pilikian and Sarah Tynan.
Jin He Park was born in South Korea in 1990, and now lives and works in London. She has a MA and has participated in various group exhibitions worldwide. Her practice derives from personal experiences and explorations of time, matter and space, and takes the form of installations, objects and performances. She will travel to Kharkiv to do a residency at the YermilovCentre (August 2016).
Pablo Rossello, Director Arts Development (the British Council in Ukraine), said: ‘We’re very excited to be giving these talented UK-based artists the opportunity to discover, first-hand, the diverse Ukrainian contemporary art scene. These Ukrainian residencies follow the residencies which already took place in Liverpool for 4 Ukraine-based artists. SWAP will culminate with an exhibition towards the end of year, showcasing the results of the programme and residencies.’
The annual graduate shows will take place simultaneously across the College’s two campuses in Battersea and Kensington. ShowRCA offers visitors a unique opportunity to experience the very best of emerging contemporary art and design practice. Over 700 art and design postgraduate students will exhibit work of exceptional quality, imagination and technical skill. The exhibitions are free, with much of the work for sale or commission – ranging from paintings to prints, glassware to jewellery and furniture to textiles.
ShowRCA 2016 is open to the public 26 June to 3 July, 12 midday to 8pm (closed Friday 1 July)

Live: Sweat / Camden Arts Centre
Saturday 23 April, 2.00 - 3.00pm & 3.30 - 4.30pm
Sweat is the excretion of perspiration through the pores of the skin, an abject product of exertion and an essential function to maintain internal regulation. During this performance, physical works, bodily actions and recorded sounds will amalgamate to form a sculptural performance where contortions of the body stretch out in all manner of forms.
Our bodies are continually morphing and changing, ageing, dying, absorbing and perspiring, mixing our biologies when in contact with other objects and people - a porosity through perspiration. Yet the bodily ambitions of advertising and commerce evoke a limitless body, ever smooth and supple, glossy and contained to the boundary of screens and pages so it is endlessly editable (as Addidas’ slogan declares 'Impossible is Nothing').
In Vedic Sanskrit, Yoga means to 'to add', 'to join' or 'to unite' placing an emphasis on physical exercise with spiritual and meditative roots. Sweat presents the conjoining of nine sculptural artworks and bodies, drawing on corporal practises that relate to spirituality as well as the health and leisure industries. During this performance, physical works, bodily actions and recorded sounds will amalgamate to form a sculptural performance where contortions of the body stretch out in all manner of forms.
Including works by Sheena Leach, Mette Boel, Doujin Kim, Caroline Mackenzie, Alicia Tsigarides, Jin He Park, Leah Carless, Julia Parkinson, Holly Hendry
