Watch BBC News interview with Alixandra Fazzina, UNHCR’s Nansen Refugee Award winner on YouTube…….
Alixandra Fazzina was awarded the 2010 Nansen Refugee Award on 9th July. Announcing the recipient of this year’s Nansen Award, U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres called Fazzina a “fearless humanitarian. By unearthing and so vividly portraying the individual stories of uprooted people she has achieved something remarkable. Her commitment, empathy and devotion to getting to the bottom of every story make her an exemplary chronicler of the world’s most vulnerable people.”

In its fourth year, the summer sculpture show on the roof of the multi storey car park in the heart of Peckham has become something of a much-anticipated annual fixture. On Wednesday 30th June 2010 it opened for its fourth installment, and this year featured new work by Brazilian artist Juliana Cerqueira Leite, whose first solo show Trolley Gallery presented in Spring 2009. Since then work from her solo show was on loan as part of a semi-permanent exhibition at the Cass Foundation, Goodwood, ‘Subject | Matter.’ For Bold Tendencies, organised by Hannah Barry Gallery, Juliana produced a fantastic new inflatable latex work, which expands to the dimensions of her body at its furthest stretch, that she brought over from New York (where she currently lives and works) – all in a seven foot surfboard bag. There is also Frank’s Campari bar, which itself is a logistic-defying feat, designed by Paloma Gormley and Lettice Drake and run by Frank Boxer and the chef from the gastronomic institution that is the Hope and Anchor in Waterloo. Those who have been will know what I’m talking about and those who haven’t – what are you waiting for! On until 30th September.
Dates: Wednesday 30 June – Thursday 30 September 2010
Exhibition and Frank’s opening hours: Thursday – Sunday 11am – 10pm
