Huge congratulations are in order for Lower Sixth student Katie who won the regional heat of the ARTiculation competition at the Lightbox, Woking on Wednesday 12 February. 

The ARTiculation Prize invites students, between the ages of 16 – 19 to deliver a ten minute presentation on a work of art, architecture or artefact. Adjudicators are asked to assess each presentation as a whole, looking at content, structure, delivery and the speaker’s original approach and unique potential. Previous adjudicators have included Dr Tristram Hunt, Tim Marlow, Sir Antony Gormley RA, Edmund de Waal, The Hon. Hannah Rothschild, Jon Snow, Dr Penelope Curtis and Sam Thorne.

The competition this year was adjudicated by Jennifer Scott, Director of the Dulwich Picture Gallery. Katie was highly praised for her superb presentation on Hilary Lloyd’s video installation, ‘One Minute of Water’, 1999. Specific compliment was given for her poetic presentation, for setting the premise that this presentation was going to be more about the world we live in than about the artwork and then so cleverly bringing it back to the artwork. Jennifer applauded Katie for taking the audience on a journey and letting them reflect, additionally describing her presentation as ‘beautiful’ and ‘still’.

Katie competed against eight other truly impressive students to go on to win her place at the London final to be held at The National Gallery on 28 February.
