Award 4: Still Live, Samuel Temple
Updated: May 11
Still Live is a film portrait project from Samuel Temple created in response to Sarah Everard's murder and the ongoing conversation about violence against women and girls.
"Every woman I know has a story of mistreatment, harassment or abuse. I want anyone walking past the work at night to slow down for a second and watch something where very little happens. In light of recent events to use just a moment of time to watch something and think after. This video is really simple, it shows a person, a woman, coming in and out of the light. What does that say to you?" - Samuel Temple
Still Live will be projected into public spaces as the country re-opens pubs and restaurants and womxn once again have to negotiate public spaces at night.
The work showed in:
Brighton on Sunday 18 April on Kings Road and Jubilee Street
London on Tuesday 20 April at Emergency Exit Arts, North Greenwich
Glasgow Tuesday 27 April - 4 May on Sauchiehall Street, Buchanan Street, Glasgow Queen Street Station, Campus Bar and other locations.
"My art is a combination of photography and writing. It looks at relationships, identity, home and the relationships between them. At the moment I’d describe my work as delicate. We see a constant stream of explicit and obvious, so If I can make something that gives time or space for thought then that's where I want to be."
We are really proud to support Samuel to get this brilliant work into the public realm in this vital moment when many of us will once again be in public spaces at night for the first-time in over a year.
Be safe everyone.
