Andrés Anza


Mexican ceramic artist Andrés Anza is the winner of this year's LOEWE FOUNDATION Craft Prize for his ceramic totemic work entitled 'I only know what I have seen'. The jury praised the work for the way it combines the "figurative and the abstract" with "architectural intention and precision". Assembled in five parts, the work is constructed from refractory clay and features a dynamic composition which appears to twist, turn and fold in on itself. Thousands of tiny, spiked protrusions covering the work’s surface lend it a further amorphic quality. After the work was fired in a kiln to give an even surface, acrylic paint was applied. This monochromatic finish allows light and shadow to further emphasise the work’s highly textured surface.

Special Mention

For the first time, the jury awarded three special mentions: Miki Asai, from Japan, who created 'Still Life' jewellery topped with miniature vessels adorned with tiny shards of eggs and sea shells; emmanuel boos, from France, who crafted 'Coffee table 'Comme un Lego'' from 98 hollow porcelain bricks that can each be lifted individually from the structure; and Heechan Kim, from the Republic of Korea, whose bulbous '#16' is crafted from delicate strips of ash that have been manipulated and bent, resulting in a unique organic structure with a continuously smooth surface and channels which flow through to a large central chamber.

Alfredo Jaar

Premi Mediterrani Albert Camus

Alfredo Jaar is the winner of the IV Premi Mediterrani Albert Camus. Alfredo Jaar was born in 1956 in Santiago, Chile, where he studied architecture and film making before emigrating in 1982. He lives and works in New York. Alfredo Jaar, is an architect and artist who explores, and re-stages existing photographs in groundbreaking ways. His research into what he calls "the politics of images" is firmly rooted in photography, problematizing ideas of objective realities and universal truths. He has consistently scrutinised the representation of war, conflict, and human suffering in press photography and mainstream media. Jaar’s poignant works not only focus our attention upon matters of burning concern but also upon how we look at photographs and the conditions framing their meaning.

Anne-Lise Broyer

Prix Niépce Gens d’images

Anne-Lise Broyer is the winner of the Prix Niépce Gens d’images 2024. For over 20 years, Anne-Lise Broyer has been pursuing a singular body of photographic work, like an experience of literature through the eyes, intimately combining reading and the emergence of the image, writing and photography. By drawing directly onto the silver print in graphite, she creates a journey between two worlds, that of the eye (photography) and that of the hand (writing). The viewer wanders through the image, from one technique to the other.
