The winner of the Jury Prize 2010 is Kristina Kersa with her work I sing as the bird sings.
The jury´s motivation:
In her work nominated for the Prize of the ”Forårsudstilling” 2010, Kristina Kersa has depicted a series of almost motionless people. They sit with their backs to the audience, hunched over a hardly visible object, so that the viewer has to invest a certain amount of time in order to discover the just audible sounds of a bird as the focus of the portrayed persons’ attention. In the work the traditional Flemish sport of ”Finching”, in which bird breeders compete about how many calls each finch can make in an hour, is turned into a poetic moment of intense observation through the cropping of the image and the installation on almost life-size screens.
Director Anders Lichinger, Artistoys, is handing over the Jury Prize to Kristina Kersa.
