Gow Langsford Art Prize Winner Announced
Last night we held a small event to celebrate the 10 Gow Langsford Art Prize finalists and announce the winner.
Judy Millar judged the final 10 and chose Iann An’s work to be the winner of the $5,000 award. Judy comments: "When you judge an award, you're always hoping to see something that you can't quite get your head around, that alludes the definition of things as you know them. A work that opens a new kind of world.
Iann An uses materials with great ease, almost a carelessness which is fantastic. The body – we all have one and are in one but Iann presents bodies in a way I haven't met before, in a way that challenges my bodily experience, and for that reason I'm selecting her work for the award."
Judy has also generously added a Judges Prize of a $500 voucher for Gordon Harris which was awarded to Emerita Baik.
