The Nam June Paik Art Center Prize, an international yearly award of fifty thousand dollars split among the winners, has announced the recipients of its inaugural prize, according to E-Flux. The aim of the prize is to reflect on Nam June Paik’s unique contribution to the field of artistic practice by recognizing artists who have operated within more embracing visions of technology, questioning unidirectional communication flows, and emphasizing the role of multiple levels of audience participation through practices that bridge together numerous areas, from dance to performance to art.
Two separate juries were convened to select the two Korean and two international artists. For the international jury panel, the members were executive director of Center A in Vancouver, Hank Bull; associate curator at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Doryun Chong; director of the National Galleries, Berlin, Udo Kittelman; artist and professor at Keizai University, Tokyo, Tetsuo Kogawa; and Belgian curator and author Barbara Vanderlinden. The jury for the Korean artists consisted of artist Jeonghwa Choi, Gangnam University professor Minkyung Kim, curator and critic Geun-jun Lim, artist Seong-Min Hong, and Nam June Paik Art Center director Youngchul Lee.
The artists selected for this year’s inaugural prize are:
Eun-me Ahn, currently based in Korea after several years in New York, juxtaposes traditional elements from Korean culture with contemporary aesthetics. Her work offers a combination of music, language, and dance grounded in the body.
Ceal Floyer, Pakistan-born British artist currently based in Berlin, combines everyday materials to play on the interaction between perception and expectation. Her work often translates into minimal multimedia pieces that inquire about the physical and conceptual spaces of art.
Seung-taek Lee, Korean born, has a practice that questions established political, social, and artistic values through work that pushes the boundaries of art and culture in a highly individual assimilation of cultural discourses associated to modernity.
Robert Adrian X, Canadian born, works in Vienna since 1972. Adrian X has been working on installations, music, and radio projects, as well as works in public space since 1957. From 1979, he has pioneered work in the telecommunication field.
