Michelle Gamaker was one of the six shortlisted artists for the 2020 Jarman Award. ASCA researcher Catherine Lord stars as a large man and a nun in two films in Gamaker’s trilogy. In 2020 the Film London Jarman Award was split between all six shortlisted artists, a first in the Award's history.
The decision to split the prize money was a collaborative decision between the six shortlisted artists, Film London and the Jury for the 2020 Jarman Award. It reflects the solidarity of the artistic and creative community in the face of the challenging economic conditions resulting from the global COVID-19 pandemic.
