2017 WINNER & FINALISTS
Zuza Golińska | Winner
Zuza was announced as ArtePrize 2017 winner at the private view on 22 January, and was awarded a cash prize of US$15,000 and a much coveted three month residency at Delfina Foundation.
“The judges felt that all of the works by the ArtePrize finalists are equally strong; so we have partly based our decision on the basis of who will benefit the most from the residency at Delfina Foundation. Zuza Golińska’s installation is wholly immersive and impactful. As you walk around Dead End | Future Twice you become part of the work and mould into the space. The idea of where you fit in life, in society, in a room, is something that everyone can relate to, and, because Zuza’s art is about interaction with society and world around you, we believe that being in London for three months will progress her practice immeasurably.”
- Aaron Cezar, Chair of the ArtePrize judging panel and Director of Delfina Foundation
“The entries we have received for the ArtePrize were what we had hoped for and more. We have uncovered some incredible talent from all over the world and the finalists we have selected show the very best of these. The young talent we are bringing together could easily never have been discovered if not for art-focused social technology – and we are very excited at the effectiveness of our simple, innovative approach to art prize submissions. The next version of our ArteVue App takes this premise even further in the drive to democratise art and connect the art ecosystem.”
- Shohidul Ahad-Choudhury, Founder of ArteVue
The ArtePrize 2017 finalists continue to be exhibited at Delfina Foundation in London from 23 – 27 January 2018.
Zuza Golińska deals with the relationship between humans, public space and architecture. Based in Warsaw, Poland, her work is strongly influenced by the way people behave in and interact with the public realm.
Dead End | Future Twice is about relations between people and the ecosystem those relations create. Shown as a laser installation in the three dimensional space, it is also about all the borders and structures people experience while being a part of the art world or any other environment. It is about the paths that will eventually cross and some that will remain parallel.
