2 October 2013 | The 2014 Anne & Gordon Samstag International Visual Arts Scholarships have just been announced. The two recipients are South Australian based Madison Bycroft and Melbourne based Linda Tegg.

Bycroft works in video installation and sculpture - an example of her video work is shown below. She has recently been selected for the influential Sydney biennale satellite event SafARI, and intends to use the scholarship to develop the sculptural potential of her practice.

Tegg works in photography, video, installation and performance, creating works that challenge the act of viewing and of being viewed. She intends to use the scholarship to further her interest in interdisciplinary practice by working in a post-graduate program that actively links artistic, design and scientific research.

The scholarships provide a 12 month living allowance as well as travel expenses and the cost of institutional study fees at a destination of each recipient's choice. The selection panel for the 2014 Samstag scholarships comprised Andrew Hill, director of the South Australian School of Art; Louise Haselton, artist and lecturer at the Anne & Gordon Samstag School of Art; and Mikala Dwyer, lecturer at the Sydney College of the Arts and recipient of a Samstag scholarship in 2005.
