Each year Spike Island offers fellowships to promising graduates of the University of the West of England, Falmouth University and Plymouth College of Art. We look forward to welcoming four new Graduate Fellows for 2015–16: Esme Boggis and James Lee join us for a year, while Nicholas Popham from Falmouth University and Andy Cluer from Plymouth College of Art undertake a three-month residency.

Night of the Fellows sees them introduce themselves alongside outgoing fellows Simon Hood and Steph Li (UWE graduates) who recall their experiences and discuss plans for the future.

Esme Boggis

Esme Boggis (b.1993) graduated from UWE Art and Visual Culture programme in 2015. Her work encompasses ideas of imitation through large sculptural installations featuring an array of everyday objects.


Andy Cluer

Andy Cluer (b.1992) graduated from Plymouth College of Art in 2015. His multidisciplinary practice challenges utopian theories and failed architectural structures through abstract visuals and sculptural installations.


James Lee

James Lee (b.1993) graduated from the UWE Art and Visual Culture programme in 2015. His work crosses the distinction between writing and film-making, attempting to make one media conform to the structures of the other.


Steph Li

Steph Li (b.1990) graduated in 2014 from UWE with a degree in Art and Visual Culture. She studied a semester at Berlin’s UdK and has exhibited across Bristol, London and Berlin. Her work holds a sculptural nuance that moves through installation, film, and sound.


Nicholas Popham

Nicholas Popham (b.1992) graduated from Falmouth University Fine Art Programme in 2015. He investigates the materiality of digital images, using video to create a performative space in which the filmed moment is treated as a sculptural medium.
