Artist-duo Webb-Ellis discuss For The First Baby Born in Space, commissioned for Jerwood/FVU Awards 2019: Going, Gone, with writer, Emily LaBarge.

Filmed during the extraordinary long, hot summer of 2018, For The First Baby Born in Space features a number of teenagers from North Yorkshire and elsewhere. Talking to them about their hopes and aspirations and listening to them about their fears, it records how their coming of age coincides with a time when so much else is in flux.

Webb Ellis – Caitlin and Andrew Webb-Ellis live and work across Britain and Europe. Webb-Ellis have been working together since their time at Arts University in Bournemouth, both graduating with a BA in Photography in 2012. Recent presentations include Whitstable Biennale (2018); Inheritors, Siobhan Davies Dance, London (2018); Video Jam, Manchester (2017); Slant, For the Unsettling, Jerwood Space, London (2017); Aesthetica Art Prize 2017, York Art Gallery (2017); Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival, Hawick (2017); Visions in the Nunnery, Bow Arts, London (2016); Estuary Festival, Tilbury Cruise Terminal (2016). Webb-Ellis are currently presenting We chose the earth project funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation at Whitstable Biennale until June (2020).

Emily LaBarge is a writer based in London, where she teaches at the Royal College of Art. Amongst other publications, she has written for Frieze, the LA Review of Books, Bookforum, the Guardian, Tate Etc., The White Review, Artforum and The Paris Review.

This talk is programmed as part of the Jerwood/FVU Awards 2019: Going, Gone exhibition, featuring two new moving-image commissions by Webb-Ellis and Richard Whitby. The galleries are open late before the event (5-7pm) giving you the chance to enjoy our exhibitions and refreshments.
