Daria Martin wins the Film London Jarman Award 2018


Following in the footsteps of notable previous winners Luke Fowler (2008), James Richards (2012) and Oreet Ashery (2017), Daria Martin (b.1973) is the jury’s choice this year.


A finalist alongside Larry Achiampong & David Blandy, Jasmina Cibic, Lawrence Lek, Hardeep Pandhal and Margaret Salmon, Daria Martin was selected for her “long-running practice [which] has seen her constantly challenge herself, creating an eclectic and expansive body of work that has explored everything from dreams and mythology to technology and feminism”, in the words of Adrian Wootton, Chief Executive of Film London and the British Film Commission.


The award is accompanied by prize money of £10,000. More information available via a.n.
