Anna Maria Maiolino
Golden Lions for Lifetime Achievement
The Italian-born Brazilian artist Anna Maria Maiolino and the Paris-based Turkish artist Nil Yalter are the recipients of the Golden Lions for Lifetime Achievement of the 60th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia -Stranieri Ovunque - Foreigners Everywhere. Though best-known today for large-scale sculptures formed from clay and cement, Maiolino began making conceptual artworks and films during the '60s and '70s that count among the most important works produced in Latin America during the era. Yalter’s films, installations, and conceptual artworks have tested gender norms and crossed national borders. In ways both provocative and understated, Yalter has shown that identity is flexible and mutable, and often subject to changes depending on where a person is and how they present themselves to the world.

nous l'horizon resterons seul
by Jean-François Spricigo
Prix Nadar Gens d’images
The Prix Nadar Gens d’images 2023 was awarded to Jean-François Spricigo's book nous l'horizon resterons seul, published by Le Bec en l'air. As the images unfold, the landscapes of the overseas coasts of Reunion Island, Mayotte and French Guiana are revealed in an intimate quest for the sensitive. Memories of encounters with other human beings and animals, on an equal footing, pop up here and there among the vegetation, and echoes the ever-renewed wonder of the immensity of living things.

Révélation Arts plastiques
The ADAGP's Révélation Arts plastiques 2023 in partnership with the Salon de Montrouge was awarded to Rafael Moreno. Born in Colombia in 1993, they live and work in Paris. Through installation, performance and text, Rafael Moreno questions the notion of performativity and technology. In order to deconstruct the relationships born of forms of domination and power, they draw on fictional narratives constructed from found objects whose capitalist, neo-liberal and Western symbolism serves to analyse the relationship between the human body, technology and current socio-economic contexts.

The ADAGP's Révélation Design 2023 in partnership with the École des Arts Décoratifs, was awarded to Paul Gauthier for his project Les dormants. Born in 1998, Paul Gauthier is a French designer living and working in Paris, combining spontaneity and rigour, he reinvents the existence of objects through "happy sobriety", in the words of Pierre Rabhi, to whom he relates. Les dormants, which takes its name from the "dormant pieces" used in this project, proposes a new way of looking at the use of second-hand resources in fine furniture. Focusing on the value of re-use and reproducibility, these objects are embodied in a form of minimalism that transforms the material while retaining their singularity.
