Minsuk Cho — Mass Studies

Serpentine Pavilion

Serpentine announced that Seoul-based Korean architect Minsuk Cho and his firm Mass Studies have been selected to design the 23rd Pavilion. Mass Studies’ Pavilion will be unveiled at Serpentine South on 5 June 2024. Titled Archipelagic Void, the Pavilion will consist of five "islands" designed around an open space. Mass Studies envisions a void defined by a series of smaller, adaptable structures located at its periphery, intertwining with the park’s natural ecology and its temporal conditions. The central void will act like the madang, a small courtyard found in old Korean houses, accommodating rich spatial narratives ranging from individual everyday activities to large collective events.

Pascal Vonlanthen — Lovay Fine Arts

Prix Solo artgenève-F.P.Journe

At artgenève 2024, the Prix Solo artgenève-F.P.Journe was awarded to the gallery Lovay Fine Arts for the Solo Show of Pascal Vonlanthen. Pascal Vonlanthen was born in 1957, he lives and works in Fribourg, Switzerland. Since 2014, Vonlanthen has drawn the raw material for his work from the texts, headlines and illustrations of local and international printed newspapers. As an illiterate person with cognitive dysfunctions, he interprets printed typography, advertisements, weather reports and other illustrations by hand. Unlike advertising copywriters who produce data in an attempt to capture our attention, Vonlanthen writes in such a way as to subvert its intelligibility.

Valerie Asiimwe Amani

Foundwork Artist Prize

Tanzanian artist and writer, Valerie Asiimwe Amani currently based in Oxford, UK, has been awarded the 2023 Foundwork Artist Prize. Working through various physical and embodied mediums, Amani's practice interrogates the ways in which body erotics, language, and the mythical are used to situate (or isolate) the self within community. "Among many outstanding submissions, Valeria Asiimwe Amani’s work stood out for her captivating and compelling approach to performance. Amani’s wide-ranging works mix media in order to combine the artist’s subjectivity with narrative, through the lens of folklore and history." said jury member Alex Gartenfeld, Artistic Director at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami.
