To coincide with the 400th anniversary of the King James translation of the Bible, Southwark Cathedral is inviting artists to translate themes from the biblical stories of Abraham, Hagar and Sarah into contemporary culture. Lancelot Andrewes, leader of the company of scholars that translated Genesis among other books of the Bible, is buried in Southwark Cathedral.  The Lancelot Andrewes Awards challenge today’s artists and photographers to take up his mantle by translating stories from Genesis into today’s visual media. The colourful stories of Abraham, Sarah and Hagar can be found in Genesis chapters 11-25. These are challenging narratives containing the lows and highs of human experience with tales of dislocation and wandering, of the destruction of cities and founding of new nations, of human jealousy and deceit, of old age and new life, of divine promise, human hope, perseverance, faith and fulfilment.  Hagar in Hebrew means “the (resident) alien”, so these stories also provoke us to wonder about our treatment of the “resident aliens” in our midst.  Entrants are asked to take from these stories a theme, passage or moment that speaks to them about some aspect of 21st century life and experience and to translate this to a contemporary audience. Forms of artwork that may be submitted include: painting,...
