Award for film about our Art in the Age of Covid exhibition

Anna filming at the exhibition

Congratulations to Anna Bowman on winning Best Environmental Short Film at the Paris Women Festival, for her documentary that charts the creation of our exhibition Life In The Age Of Covid.

The Arts Project, led by curator Peter Herbert, released the documentary which focused on the Life in the Age of Covid exhibition held at St Pancras Hospital earlier this year; filming the artist and other creatives then capturing the launch, and the reactions to the installation.

The film, also called Life in the Age of Covid, features those involved in the exhibition and key figures at Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust.

The 20-minute documentary, made by film -maker Anna Bowman, shows artist Alana Jelinek painting the huge wall mural that lined the Conference Centre and served as the focal point for the exhibition. It includes the soundtrack of birdsong, recorded by Rob Godman, that was a feature of the installation, along with testimony from some of the 21 creatives whose work was displayed.

The film serves as a record of the exhibition, which itself was an artistic record of lockdown during the pandemic. It can be seen on YouTube here, or on Vimeo here.
