Dreamtime Fellowship at Spike Island awarded to Izzy Mooney

The 2019 Dreamtime Fellowship, initiated with funding and support from Luke Jerram, has been awarded to Bristol-based artist Izzy Mooney.

Izzy recently graduated in BA Fine Art at University of the West of England. Working across film, sculpture, painting and print, her work explores the notion of the archive as a transitional space, including how objects and images operate when separated from their physical origins.

Izzy will have access to her own studio space at Spike Island for a year and will be granted Spike Associates membership, which offers free access to regular talks, studio visits from artists, critics and curators, and other forms of peer-to-peer learning and support. Izzy will also receive a bursary of £5,000 and three one-to-one mentoring sessions with Luke Jerram throughout the year.

The Dreamtime Fellowship

Initiated with funding and support from established Bristol-based artist Luke Jerram, Spike Island announced a new fellowship opportunity for a recent graduate artist living in Bristol. The opportunity was open to artists who have graduated from a BA or MA Fine Art course from any institution within the last five years.
