Julian Harper from Provo, Utah (USA) wins first place with his video “It’s Getting Hot In This Cosby Sweater“. He uses his art to explore his relationship to other people in terms of race and performance. In his video, he slips into the role of a well-known TV character of the ‘90s. In addition to a trip to
Art Basel Miami Beach or Art Basel Hong Kong, Julian will receive a one- year mentorship that will help his career as an artist.

Arshia Sohail from Pakistan wins second place with her installation “FREEDOM” and thus, her own exhibition at a well-established gallery. The artist wants to draw attention to the subjective understanding and contextual dependency of individual words with her work. Her installation shows sparrows in a metal cage forming the word “FREEDOM”.

By displaying an egg yolk on a monocle, the artist Yun- Ling Chen (Taiwan) wants to point out how sensitive individual items are and to blur the boundaries between abstract and real. During a one-day mentoring session with an art expert, the artist will receive important training for her further professional career.
