For the third year running, A Collection has chosen ArtVerona as the landmark Show for its annual award.
The prize was awarded jointly to Rebecca Moccia, represented by Mazzoleni (Turin, London) and Franklyn Evans, represented by Wizard Gallery (Milan), by the jury comprising Chiara Casarin and Giovanni Bonotto, Chiara Nuzzi, curator and editorial manager of the ICA Milano Foundation, and Nadim Samman, curator of the KW Institute for Contemporary Art, with the following motivation: “We selected the artists on the basis of several different criteria and with a very open mind towards artistic languages and various kinds of research, as well as the challenges that can arise during their periods of residence. We were convinced by the potential that may emerge from the different research projects undertaken by the two artists, as regards formal solutions, in-depth research and topics, as well as the different display processes.”
A Collection curated by Chiara Casarin offers the winner the chance to design a tapestry and be involved in production stages. The tapestry will be made by master weaver Giovanni Bonotto who, through dialogue with the artist, then will build the visual identity of the work. The 25 large tapestries made so far were also produced using yarns obtained from processing recycled plastic, thereby combining environmental and ethical commitment with attention and support to the most pertinent developments in contemporary visual research.
