Konrad Smolenski wins art prize Views 2011

October 20, 2011 │ Warsaw

An international jury recognised Konrad Smoleński as the most interesting young artist on the Polish art scene in the last two years.

The jury felt his works struck a chord with the unspoken unrest of the contemporary moment. They also rewarded him for the sensitivity with which he makes use of sound in video art, a rare quality in Poland. They also applauded the subtle relations he constructs between object, sound and art. The award winner received a prize equal to the value of 15,000 euros.

The second prize this year - a three week working stay at the Villa Romana in Florence – was awarded to Honza Zamojski for the way in which he revisits the idiom of formalism, but without the burden of history. This is a new and fresh approach which enables him to create an aesthetic of his own.
