The Prize Winner jury has announced the winners of the Golden Dragons in Ladonia Biennial 2009.


Golden Dragon: Moscow Poetry Club

The Invincible Armada (after Lope de Vega)

Transforming text-into-art-into-text introduces an aspect of adventure that in a spectacular way alters how we perceive our understanding of what art is.

Moscow Poetry Club expresses a desperation related to the hardships of history; only during a strong repression the poet will be able to show strength. 



Silver Dragon: Rosa Barba

The Lost Island 

She captures the moment of what has not yet happened in a way that subversively alters our perception of 'what is'. 

 

Bronze Dragon: Chen Zhen

Jue Chang - Fifty Strokes to Each 

Chen Zhen finds a starting point in the specific site and makes a performance about communication and participation. An affinity between the site and the world is created.


Green Dragon for an artist under 40 years: Jumana Emil Abboud

Smuggling Lemons from Sweden to Ladonia (The Diver 2) 

Jumana Emil Abboud brings with her lemons the Mideast conflict to Ladonia and is showing a relation between suppressed countries.  


Black Dragon for best artist presented in the photo section: John Baldessari

Shore with Persons of Different Nationalities

John Baldessari, always with a sense of distance, is showing the multiplicity of Ladonia and questions the common categories of ethnicity.


 

Jury: Carin Madsén Kollberg, art scientist, Martin Schibli, curator, Amit Sen, performance artist and musician.

Atsuko Tanaka (1932-2005) and Akira Kanayama (1924-2005), were original members of the Osaka-based avant-garde group Gutai Art Association (and, later, husband and wife). Tanaka is best-known for her 1956 Electric Dress of colored lightbulbs and wires (shown in the biennial). Kanayama's has for example made watercolors and ink drawings in the early '50s, austere, presaging the minimalist painters' conceptual concerns.The biennial is showing his installation Traces.
