Congratulations to Hannah Morgan, recipent of the the Adrian Carruthers Award 2022/23.The Adrian Carruthers Award is a partnership between Acme and the Slade, generously supported by the Adrian Carruthers Memorial Fund. This award was instigated by Adrian Carruthers’ family with the goal of providing a bridge between college and professional practice for MFA graduates from Slade School of Fine Art. The award includes a bursary, rent-free studio space and mentoring programme tailored specifically to the graduate’s practice.
Hannah was selected from a shortlist of artists by a panel including independent cultural producer and commissioner Nephertiti Oboshie Schandorf.
Hannah Morgan's work consists of sculptural installation. Her degree show presentation Animula is a series of propositions, drawing on geographic entanglement of matter and organisms, emergence and decay, of a cave site in the Moray Firth, Scotland. Text written in the back of the cave feeds the structures and forms. Navigating in-between spaces, volatile timelines, and questioning material contamination in relationship to the strata.
