Today's Recommendation: 5 Artists from the Prize

Aesthetica Magazine sent this email to their subscribers on April 16, 2024.


 Installation art is a multilayered genre. These works alter their surroundings
and take audiences on a sensory journey. The Aesthetica Art Prize champions artists
who bring thought-provoking ideas to life through inventive visuals. Our longlist features
artists whose complex pieces articulate the power of imagination and originality. The
following list comprises creative practitioners who examine themes including animal
rights, industrialisation and land ownership through digital, large-scale and organic installations.
 
 
Theresa Schubert
 
Dr. Theresa Schubert is a Berlin-based artist, and curator exploring unconventional visions
of nature, technology and the self. Her conceptual practice combines audiovisual media to create immersive installations. Schubert’s aesthetic lies between alchemy
and science fiction, and her works question anthropocentrism whilst enabling alternative visions and/or new sensory experiences. 
 
 

Dawn Felicia Knox
 
Dawn Felicia Knox explores toxicity, remediation and transformation through interventions and multimedia installations.
She often works together with scientists, community members and fellow artists to collectively learn from the dynamic
ecosystems in which we live.  
 
 

Louise Beer
 
New Zealand artist and curator Louise Beer uses installation, moving- image, photography, writing, participatory works and sound to explore humanity's evolving understanding of Earth’s environments and the cosmos. Beer questions how living under dark skies or in a light polluted environment can change our perception of grief, the climate crisis and Earth’s deep time history and future. 
 
 

Franziska Bernadette
 
Franziska Bernadette, a basketry and
light artist, imparts a new perspective on traditional weaving. Breaking free from conventional weaving techniques, she
strives for reinterpretation. Her installation Inside Out metaphorically symbolises three self-confident and empowered women. Utilising shadow projections, these sculptures emerge, adopting diverse forms and aesthetics. 
 
 

Louise Stevens
 
Louise Stevens makes films and immersive artworks that are as much about rhythm and timing as they are about social politics and the innate humour found in life. In 3% - The Art of Trespass, Stevens plays with the semiotics of land ownership by inviting us to trespass a post-digital river using depth sensors, multi-screen video installation and spatial audio.
