Commissioned Works ~ TV Swansong

TV Swansong was an Internet based exhibition curated by Nina Pope and Karen Guthrie, the theme centred on television moving over to the Internet. Jessica Voorsanger’s contribution was collaboration with CBBC’s (Children’s BBC Television) SMart. SMart was a children’s art making TV programme. They filmed a segment at The LCCA (Leytonstone Centre for Contemporary Art, the gallery that Jessica runs with her husband, Bob & Roberta Smith). The segment that was filmed centred on a project that Jessica devised and was later broadcast on the BBC. The result of the airing was to create a competition for other children to send in their artworks culminating on the Swansong TV live broadcast, The Turner Prize for Kids, which was presented by TV Arts presenter Matthew Collings.
