2015 Competition Winners
The 2015 competition was won by Martin Scheuregger. The 2015 judging panel comprised Lisa Appignanesi, Michael Berkeley, Rachel Cusk, Juliet Gardiner, Jeremy Harding, Deborah Levy, Stephen Romer and Fiona Shaw.
Martin Scheuregger’s ‘In that Solitude’ is a composition for violin and piano, which arrestingly explores the traditionally modernist notion of the fragment to create a new musical language. Listen to 'In that Solitude' or read the description.
Fran Allfrey and Fran Brooks’s ‘A Gift for the Illuminated Sphere’ is a curated book that beautifully juxtaposes medieval and modernist art to teach us to look in new ways. View the book and read the description.
Eleanor Chandler and Zoe Kingsley’s ‘Notes on Cling Film Part 1’ is a sound poem that lyrically and radically appropriates various modernist texts and replaces certain words with the cipher ‘cling film’. Listen to 'Notes on Cling Film Part 1' or read the description.
