The winner of Share Prize 2009 is….
From the Jury statement “the winner of the SHARE Prize 2009 is Andreas Muxel for his mobile sculpture Connect. This mesmerizing installation, with its precarious mixture of bouncing rubber and flying steel, is like a world financial crisis all by itself. With simple but powerful elements, Connect generates endless dramatic episodes of comical failure and heroic determination. The vital network of Connect won’t stop changing, and we can’t stop looking at it.
The honorable mention goes to Ralf Baecker for Calculating Space, an intricate, meticulous work of modern device art. This geometric structure of wood, string, and tiny motors brilliantly combines its elements as a single, enigmatic, functional presense. It evokes the early history of computing while standing outside time in a calm, rigorous space of stark mathematical beauty. ”
Last but not least the Enviromental Park of Torino assigns the green-award to Salvatore Iaconesi and Oriana Perisco for the project Squatting Supermarket. Salvatore Iaconesi setted up a ideal supermarket in the Museum of Science based on the narrative dialogs beetween people, companies and goods.
Congratulation to all artists!
