A Bethnal Green film and photography company has announced the return of its 2015 residency programme London-based artists.

Applications are now open for the second round of the FATHOM programme by Four Corners, a gallery that describes itself as “London’s centre for film and photography”.

It will include work-in-progress events and talks, an annual exhibition and an associated symposium with the Sir John Cass Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design at London Metropolitan University.

Four Corners will support five successful applicants in developing new work, allowing them to use their dedicated space and facilities.

Carla Mitchell, development director of Four Corners, told Eastlondonlines: “[FATHOM provides] a unique opportunity for emerging artists working in film and photography to have the time to experiment and create new work.  It is the only programme of its kind in London.”

The forthcoming FATHOM 2014 exhibition will run at Four Corners Gallery from Friday November 21 until Saturday January 31, 2015. Its exhibitors were selected by an external panel of Laura Noble, director of LA Noble Gallery and Christiane Monarchi, editor of online magazine, Photomonitor.

Noble said: “The artists present a great variety of works and practices using film and photography to communicate a diversity of ideas with inspired results.”

The programme is funded through the Arts Council’s Grants for the Arts programme, with additional support from the European Regional Development Fund.

Submissions for the 2015 residency programme close on November 24, 2014.
