Conceived as a partnership between Miart and LCA Studio Legale, the prize has awarded Vin Vin with a solo presentation by Saskia Te Nicklin.
The jury - composed of Sarah McCrory, Director, Goldsmiths CCA, London; François Quintin, Director, Lafayette Anticipations - Fondation d'entreprise Galeries Lafayette and Fonds de dotation Famille Moulin, Paris; Kathleen Reinhardt, Curator of Contemporary Art, Albertinum Dresden - says:
"We have awarded the LCA Prize for Emergent to Vin Vin Gallery, from Vienna, for the solo exhibition of Saskia Te Nicklin. The jury acknowledged the very strongly experimental approach towards different materials, which leads to a very unique research and process. The gallery was also selected for the site-specific nature of the artwork, and for the choise of treating relevant and current topics such as violence, feminism and ecology. The installation approach, with reflective surfaces experientially engaging visitors, has been another reason to assign this prize."
