10th Art Division Excellence Award


Installation [Germany]

Johanna REICH (Director)

Reason for Award

The opening scene is impressive; a young woman casts a challenging look towards us with large eyes. On her white face, she has vivid bruises, like flower petals around her eye and mouth. The girl is boxing towards a digital camera, which absorbs and computerizes every moment. It is a simple but strong message. The fight never ends, though the girl is clearly losing, she keeps getting up. The performativity of this work is beautiful.
