    Carey Young was awarded TrAIN Associate Project (TAP) seed funding for the production of a new video work to be shot on location in Hungary.

    TrAIN Associate Project Partner

    Gavin Fernandes’ photographic images are at once seductive and subversive; in series such as ‘Monarchs of the East End’ and ‘Empire Line’, he has used the visual language and techniques of fashion direction to confront attitudes towards gender, religion and identity. With TrAIN Associate Project (Tap) seed funding he will research and develop a new series of work that begins with an exploration of his own ancestry.
