THE ART GARDEN OF ARTE LAGUNA PRIZE

IL VIVAIO DEL PREMIO ARTE LAGUNA

Jules Renard

“Coltiva il tuo campo ogni anno: darà frutti tutti gli anni.” Jules Renard

In 2019 we have reached the edition number 13 of Arte Laguna Prize. If we were in an Anglo-Saxon country, to avoid negative energies, we would call it the edition 12 + 1 but, in spite of popular beliefs, we worked hard to complete this edition as well as possible. Thirteen editions are an important milestone and our commitment is to look for something new every especially, from our mistakes.

popolari, orgogliosamente ci siamo adoperati a portare a termine al meglio anche questa edizione. Tredici edizioni sono un traguardo importante e il nostro impegno è ogni anno di cercare qualcosa di nuovo, di seminare nuovi metaforici campi di ricerca, di rinnovare il format, imparando sia dai nostri successi ma, anche e soprattutto, dai nostri errori. Da diverso tempo abbiamo passato una ipotetica maggiore età e questo sicuramente è coinciso con le

held at the Arsenale of Venice. Ma la maggiore età porta anche maggiori responsabilità: sono aumentate le nostre responsabilità nei confronti degli artisti e la nostra coscienza del contesto socioculturale in cui ci troviamo. Inevitably, the Prize has become a unique and unrepeatable opportunity to take the pulse of an art the more traditional circuits, employing unusual languages or in countries where artistic production is obstructed by complex social, economic and cultural realities.

Have a good harvest…

Arte Laguna Prize is not only the most comprehensive prize of its kind, encompassing a wide range of media, artistic practices and methods. It also has a personal and social dimension.

I also appreciate how these categories are supplemented by the special nominations

To give an example, the Painting jury examined more than 4000 applications. The works were all very diverse, and each one possessed its own distinctive visual idiom. To choose the best was not an easy task, but viewers an opportunity to discover and learn something new about themselves, through the artists’ impact on artistic practices, education in visual creativity, and network support for professionals in the

Reading the comments and the notes of the artists that applied to the prize, we can notice the recurrence of some key words in contemporary painting, such as representation and abstraction, space and time. Some paintings are explained as appearances from the past or metaphors of the present; others testify the great interest in the representation of places, be they glimpses of cities, or liquid landscapes that melt into soft, evanescent textures or minutely depicted interiors. Therefore, relationship between painting and reality, a pressing need for confrontation that characterized also the choices made by the jury. After all, the relationship with reality is still the fulcrum around which

We would like to outline with even greater constancy this vulnerability of the institutional spaces. Actually, we would like to show this vulnerability by hosting an increasing number of live works and by dealing with the short-circuits they create because, at the end, the performing arts are a time of sharing, a moment in which a group of people gathers.

The distinctive trait of almost all the works chosen is that of being a metaphor of further realities, a moment or stopping in an image that spatial dimension that exists between the visible and the invisible, capable of nullifying the mirror dimension of reality to become a place of creative existence, of imagination.

Ritroviamo dunque una serie di caratteri, comuni e distintivi allo stesso tempo, che ruotano attorno al grande tema del rapporto fra pittura e realtà, una necessità stringente di confronto che ha accomunato anche le scelte compiute dalla giuria. Del resto il rapporto con la realtà rappresenta ancora il fulcro attorno a cui si muove la del vero e illusorietà della visione, fra apparenza ingannevole delle immagini e immedesimazione dello spettatore, fra un linguaggio mimetico e impersonale e lo stile individuale e soggettivizzante. Tratto distintivo di quasi tutte le opere scelte è quello dunque di essere metafora, apparizione di realtà ulteriori,

The jury in this year was presented with a total of 1352 entries in Photography and 454 in Digital Images.

1,566 works were proposed in the section 'Sculpture and Installation' and 57 in 'Virtual Art' – quite a

was no easy task. The Photography section contained both images in very traditional analogue processes – including works made using an improvised pinhole camera – and pictures made with highly sophisticated digital equipment. The Digital Graphics section was interpreted equally widely with works ranging from straightforward illustration to deep abstraction, from painterly to geometric. The profound technological and social evolutions in the last years have led to the feeling that we are in danger of being inundated by images. However the overall standard of the entries was encouragingly high. The works that made the deepest impression on me were those that combined a high degree of technical ability, producing images that revealed an equally high degree of humanity. The long

to making this choice? Should they be judged on the basis of their contemporaneity? Or should the geographical diversity of their provenance be a factor to consider, or the generation to which an artist belongs? Part of the intriguing task of assembling these criteria becomes even more challenging when

across the world to submit works in an open competition that inspires those who seek ways to share their ideas. In turn, the exhibitions have taken their place among other international initiatives that, believing in the power of the arts to make the world a better place, stand against the increasing dominance of forces that threaten the development of a fair international society.

a partial response to the need to think about works that are to be shown in a group exhibition context. As well as the interest they may provoke in their own right, they must also work in the space that is to house them. At the same time, they must generate a coherent, evocative and intelligible dynamic when they are brought together as a set, but without compromising the autonomy and impact of the individual pieces. It is remarkable that in both these sections, despite the sophisticated technologies available to artists, the works resort to very economical means, invoking the individual body and its and now. It is also surprising how the virtual nature of some proposals, rather than leading us towards

applicati per fare questa scelta? Dovrebbero essere giudicate sulla base della loro contemporaneità?

Le profonde evoluzioni tecnologiche e sociali degli ultimi anni hanno portato alla sensazione perenne che potremmo essere sommersi dalle immagini. Tuttavia lo standard è stato incoraggiante. Le opere che mi hanno colpito maggiormente sono quelle che combinano un alto grado di abilità tecnica, producendo immagini che rivelano un grado altrettanto elevato di umanità. La lunga serie di mostre del Premio Arte Laguna ha indubbiamente acquisito importanza, invitando artisti di tutto il mondo a presentare opere in una competizione che ispira coloro che cercano modi per condividere le loro visioni. A loro volta, le mostre hanno conquistato un loro statuto tra le altre iniziative internazionali che, credendo nel potere delle arti di rendere il mondo un posto migliore, si oppongono alla crescente prepotenza delle forze che minacciano

risposta parziale alla necessità di pensare a opere che devono essere esposte nel contesto di una mostra collettiva. Oltre all'interesse che possono suscitare di per sé, devono anche essere adatte allo spazio che le ospita. Devono generare una dinamica coerente, evocativa e intellegibile quando sono riunite come un insieme, ma allo stesso tempo non devono compromettere l'autonomia e l'impatto dei singoli pezzi. È artisti, i lavori ricorrono a mezzi molto economici, invocando il corpo individuale e la sua relazione con l'ambiente circostante: casa, natura, storie che gettano luce sulla nostra presenza nel qui e ora. È inoltre molto sorprendente come la natura virtuale di alcune proposte, piuttosto che guidarci verso uno spazio immaginario, ci porti a nuove letture della nostra individualità.

Being part of a jury is always a challenge. A challenge because one must evaluate artworks that deal with distinct and distant expressive languages. The particularity of the Prize is precisely the variety of places from which the artists come, but above all the multidisciplinary nature of the submitted works. Indeed, some of them cannot be considered photographs, in the narrow sense of the word. A challenge because we must always try to evaluate the works very accurately and with respect for the artists who submit them. Behind a work there is always a deep insight, a great work both in terms of time and energy spent. But mostly, there is behind an attempt to express themselves and communicate with the others. At the same time, however, being a juror also represents a possibility of self-growth. There

If on one hand the mixture between languages is getting stronger and stronger, with an evident reconsideration of design and new technologies as environments maybe because the sculptural object – or the artistic object at large – is not considered strong enough. The relationship with space, light and even with time is crucial for the characterization of the object, and over the years the search for an active relationship with the visitor has become an essential linguistic element. Nowadays, the new technologies allow a deep interaction and seek an emotional/

Over the years there has been a growing interest of art as a catalyst in creating higher life quality in the abandoned rural areas, as well as in rapidly growing cities.

The renewed interest of institutions, foundations and brands for the public and commercial use of the artistic means as a product has led to the creation of thousands of new works in urban spaces. Nowadays, urban art is more the result of those who commission it than those who produce it. At the same time, many artists continue to carry out illegal actions, only in some cases even political. This minority, which constitutes a contradiction within the movement, resists to the call of commissions and artistic projects, often embellished by the formula of urban regeneration. The divergence of the techniques used and of the typologies of interventions draws an exact picture of the great energy of the "public" artistic expression in the streets, but also of the impossibility to categorize it, if not in macro areas related to genres and materials. The overall picture is complex, heterogeneous and fragmentary. Starting from this forced decomposition of the urban art universe, we have favored works able of rethinking the existing and of playing with urban spaces, and the ability of the non-decorative urban intervention to relate to the surrounding environment in the most sensitive and spontaneous way. L'arte urbana conferma il suo primato di movimento globale. Il rinnovato interesse di istituzioni, fondazioni e brand per l'utilizzo pubblico e commerciale del mezzo artistico come prodotto ha indotto alla creazione di migliaia di nuove opere negli spazi urbani e non solo. Queste opere rappresentano volontà e interessi molto diversi tra loro e spesso in contrapposizione. Oggi continuano a portare avanti azioni illegali, solo in alcuni casi anche politiche. Questa minoranza, che costituisce una contraddizione interna al movimento, resiste ai richiami delle commissioni e dei progetti utilizzate e delle tipologie di intervento disegna un quadro esatto della grande energia che l'espressione

“There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.” (W. Shakespeare, Hamlet) And if it were the design that gives us the exact tools to read the contemporaneity? Or even the future that announces this contemporaneity? In the current catalogue, we have only a very small example of it, not a simple “exercise in style” made by creative people who care about the beauty of the things in ethics and coherence. Because it is clear that behind every creation, and also before every thought and every dream, there is the designer with his emotions, his intuitions, his knowledge, able to commit himself to create a pleasant and uncommon object, carefully choosing the resources to produce it, distribute it, use and recycle it, in accordance with its surroundings.

(W. Shakespeare, Amleto) E se fosse il design a darci gli strumenti esatti per leggere la contemporaneità? O addirittura anche il futuro che ci annuncia questa contemporaneità? In questo volume ne abbiamo solo un piccolissimo esempio, non un semplice esercizio di stile di creativi che hanno a cuore la bellezza delle cose del mondo, ma una declinazione capace di sintetizzare: estetica e innovazione, memoria e semplicità, etica e coerenza. realizzare un oggetto piacevole e non banale, attento alle risorse da utilizzare per produrlo, distribuirlo, usarlo e riciclarlo, in accordo con ciò che lo circonda.

se non in macro aree relative a generi e materiali. Il quadro è complesso, eterogeneo e frammentario. Partendo da questa forzata scomposizione dell'universo dell'arte urbana abbiamo prediletto le opere in grado di ripensare l'esistente, di giocare con i luoghi urbani, la capacità dell'intervento urbano non

Kolkata, India

organization established in 1911 and revived in 2014 to encourage and support innovation, experimentation and potential in the arts. Placing the artist at the core, the Foundation facilitates a programme of dance, music, sound, performance art, theatre and visual arts exhibitions and residencies both in India and internationally. The Jury at Basu Foundation while selecting the artist for the Arte Laguna Prize 2019 found the works of Russian artist Ivan Fedorov most striking unique and outstanding among the rest of the other talented artists. The brushstrokes, the colours, the compositions and the sensitivity of the paintings were extraordinary. Exactly for these reasons we thought that artist Ivan Fedorov will be an appropriate candidate for the residency program of Basu Foundation for the Arts in Kolkata, the City of the forgotten Palaces in India to create some more fascinating works being inspired by local scenery and surroundings from various parts of the City.

La giuria della Basu Foundation, selezionando l'artista per il Premio singolari e straordinarie. Le pennellate, i colori, le composizioni e la sensibilità dei dipinti sono davvero notevoli. Proprio per questi motivi riteniamo che l'artista sia un perfetto candidato per il programma di residenza della Basu Foundation for the Arts di Calcutta, la città dei palazzi dimenticati in India per creare altre opere magiche lasciandosi ispirare dai paesaggi locali e dai dintorni delle varie parti della città.

ESPRONCEDA Barcelona, Spain

Clara Lotta Dittmer's painting evokes an imaginary and realistic world where colors blend with the reality of life, leaving the viewer the possibility of traveling in a parallel world. Diving into the world of Barcelona with its contrasts, scents, colors, between modernism and modernity led us to the choose the German artist for the residency at Espronceda. We are interested in creating a bridge between the city and the suburbs, between imaginary and invisible places and through the works of Clara Lotta Dittmer it is possible to experiment a multidimensional and multidisciplinary interpretation of space and of everyday life, with an immersion not only in the life of Barcelona but also in the use of material and immaterial space. What interests us is the use of space and how to shape it with artistic language, Clara's painting responds to this need to industrial spaces for a research on space, time, memory, identity, daily life and imaginary. La pittura di Clara Lotta Dittmer evoca un mondo immaginario e realista dove i colori si mescolano con la realtà del vissuto lasciando allo spettatore la possibilità di viaggiare in una realtà parallela. Immergersi nel mondo di Barcellona con i suoi contrasti, odori, colori, tra modernismo e contemporaneità ci ha condotto alla scelta dell'artista tedesca per la residenza a Espronceda. Siamo interessati a creare un ponte tra la città e la periferia, tra i luoghi immaginari e invisibili e attraverso la pittura di Clara Lotta Dittmer è possibile sperimentare una lettura pluridimensionale e multidisciplinare dello spazio e del quotidiano con una immersione non solo nella vita di Barcellona ma anche sull'uso dello spazio materiale e immateriale. Ciò che ci interessa è l'uso dello spazio e come plasmarlo con il linguaggio artistico, la pittura di Clara risponde a questa necessità industriali per una ricerca sullo spazio, tempo, memoria, identità, quotidiano e immaginario.

Jad El Khoury, with the lightness of a gentle breeze, takes upon himself the responsibility to give back to the citizens of Beirut a touch of colour, poetry and beauty. His work becomes a device to push away the bad memories of the war and give a breath of hope in a present and a future of peace and harmony. Jad El Khoury did not need to build anything new nor did he need a large sum of money to turn a symbol of war, the Murr Tower Beirut Trade Center, used Landmark in Beirut.

Stavanger, Norway

Nuart prides itself on creating projects and platforms to showcase what is termed “Critical Street Art”, a practice within the broader street art movement that is concerned with raising awareness about the power structures at play in public life and space. We’re here to support the disorganised and unregulated rhythms and movement of the streets, to challenge the regulations of the institutions and the growing privatisation of not only public space, but also mental space. In doing so, we hope to act as a counter to the growing forms of spatial exclusion attached to consumerism and the monumentalisation of state funded public art programmes. Jad El Khoury’s sublime work, BURJ EL HAWA (Tower of Wind), is a towering achievement. As the noise of war Western capital and development, a new battle begins. Jad El El Khoury’s work shows, that for this generation of street artists, the streets function as deep repositories of memory and meaning for those who occupy and move through them, a place of contested perceptions and negotiated understanding that anyone can participate in shaping should they have the desire and ambition to so.

ANISE GALLERY London, United Kingdom

Anise Gallery is a contemporary art gallery with a strong focus towards the architectural aesthetic. Working with early to mid career artists in a wide range of media the gallery presents an exciting and diverse programme of exhibitions, events and talks that relate back to architecture, technology and the built environment. Horror Vacui by Matteo Zamagni encapsulates so many aspects of the gallery ethos, we were immediately struck by the imagery, concept and execution of the video. First and foremost it addresses the act of perception and of 'reality' - something the gallery has been questioning through its exhibitions for several years now. By opposing CGI with found footage the video blurs the distinction between reality and a digital recreation of it. The way Matteo approaches the references to hyper – development and the unfolding global crisis is executed with a captivating skill and attention to detail mixed with an impressive understanding of the medium. A dark, fractured sense of foreboding was perfectly matched with the music creating a powerful impression on the viewer. He had us

La galleria è conosciuta per le sue mostre stimolanti e provocatorie istituzioni per presentare le opere dei suoi artisti. La galleria è stata giapponese Akihiko Sugiura. Queste immagini commoventi, fantasiose e leggermente inquietanti mettono in discussione l'idea stessa di ritratto attraverso l'uso del paesaggio e di motivi astratti. La galleria ha sempre cercato di esporre opere di artisti innovativi che spingono al limite il loro mezzo e il loro stile, e il lavoro di Sugiura riesce a fare proprio questo. Siamo onorati di esporre e condividere questo brillante lavoro con i sostenitori di Jonathan Ferrara Gallery in tutto il mondo!

Fraccaro Spumadoro was founded in 1932 when Elena and Giovanni Fraccaro opened a small bakery in Castelfranco. From this bakery begins a confectionery tradition that will become renowned over time. A success that is based on the quality of the raw materials used, the skilled craftsmanship and the elegant packaging with a strong appeal, all distinctive characteristics of the company's products. The company has joined the Business for Art initiative of Arte Laguna Prize, thanks to which artists and creatives from all over the world have proposed a new packaging for one of Fraccaro's products.

TESSITURA BEVILACQUA Venice, Italy

BIAFARIN Toronto, Canada

Tessitura Luigi Bevilacqua was founded in Venice around 1700, but the textile tradition started many centuries earlier: it dates back to at least 1499, when the name “Giovanni Bevilacqua, waver”, one of the family’s ancestors, appeared on a painting by Giovanni Mansueti. It is the oldest European weaving still in activity. On the original looms belonging to the Silk Guild of the Republic of Venice, even today the precious soprarizzo velvet is hand-woven with the same techniques and the same quality level imposed by the Doges. Every day the skillful hands of our weavers create unique masterpieces wealth, elegance, luxury and beauty are combined with the uniqueness of Venetian savoir-faire. The selected project shows how research, history and innovation can be merged into an artistic installation. The union of locations, materials and new technologies create a changeable and harmonious combination that enhance the Venetian tradition and culture. La Tessitura Luigi Bevilacqua è stata fondata a Venezia attorno al 1700, ma la tradizione tessile è iniziata molti secoli prima: almeno nel 1499, anno che si legge nel cartiglio del quadro di Giovanni Mansueti nel quale è presente il nome di “Giacomo Bevilacqua Tessitore”, antenato della famiglia. In Europa è la tessitura più antica in attività. Sugli originali telai appartenenti alla Scuola della Seta della Serenissima, ancora oggi si tesse a mano il prezioso velluto soprarizzo con le stesse tecniche e lo stesso livello qualitativo imposto dai Dogi. Ogni giorno vengono creati dalle sapienti mani delle tessitrici, capolavori unici al mondo dove ricchezza, eleganza, lusso e bellezza si uniscono all’unicità del savoir-faire veneziano. Il progetto scelto mostra come ricerca, storia ed innovazione si possano fondere in un’installazione artistica. L’unione di location, materiali e nuove tecnologie creano un unicum mutevole ed armonioso che permette di valorizzare quella che è la tradizione e la cultura veneziana.

ART SPIRIT FOUNDATION Southport Connecticut, United States

The Art Spirit Foundation, founded in 1998 by Dianne Bernhard, has awarded over 250 artists working in the medium of pastels, through national and international juried exhibitions. Having entered many exhibitions throughout her career as an artist, Founder Bernhard recognizes the importance that competitions play in developing successful careers of emerging artists. Through Art Spirit’s programs, monetary awards, and medals, Bernhard advocates and elevates the pastel medium, as well as creates awareness that the rewards of pastel artists should be equal to traditional arenas of painting. Through the Arte Laguna Prize, selection of artist Faldina Nataliya represents the values Bernhard contemplates for outstanding recognition in the medium of pastels. Nataliya’s beautiful modern landscapes represent a skillful understanding of composition, color, pastel technique, and subject matter in a manner that conveys a sense of individuality.

SUSTAINABILITY & ART ARS (Art Reuse Sustainability) of Plastic Italy

The prize, promoted and developed with Cà Foscari Sostenibile of Ca' Foscari University of Venice and made with the support of CoReVe (National Consortium for the collection, recycling and recovery of glass). The installation convinced the jury due to the ability to combine the use of recycled plastic with an in-depth research of the themes related to the sustainable development. The outcome is an artwork with a strong artistic echo and a high impact on the visitor. In Nationmetrix, recycled plastic becomes the element that makes the “forest” of steps and procedures accessible to anyone that travels and must cross the border. The visitor who physically enters the work experiences some of the goals of the sustainable development (SDG) mentioned by the UN in the 2030 Agenda, such as the need to enhance the inclusive communities and to reduce the inequalities. The feeling of oppression and freedom, and it is precisely the material basis of the traveler's nationality, are more or less distant from a development that it can be considered really sustainable.

attraverso mostre nazionali e internazionali. Avendo partecipato a molte mostre durante la sua carriera di artista, la fondatrice Bernhard riconosce l'importanza che i concorsi svolgono nello sviluppo di carriere di successo per gli artisti emergenti. Attraverso i programmi, i premi monetari e le medaglie di Art Spirit, Bernhard sostiene e innalza il medium del pastello, oltre a creare consapevolezza che le ricompense per gli artisti che utilizzano il pastello dovrebbero essere uguale a quelle delle arene tradizionali della pittura. Attraverso il Premio Arte Laguna,
