Ellen de Bruijne PROJECTS is proud to announce that Pauline Curnier Jardin has been nominated for the shortlist of the Preis der Nationalgalerie 2019, together with Simon Fujiwara, Flaka Haliti and Katja Novitskova.
"Pauline Carnier Jardin convinced the jury with her transgressive artistic practice adopting visual and narrative elements as much from the theatre tradition as from narrative cinema. Her often humorous works are the outcome of an individual approach towards historical situations and the collective repertoire of stories, religious and cultural traditions, and mythologies by transposing them into a contemporary experimental language. The jury was especially drawn to her approach towards gender roles, diversity of identity and queerness*, addressed from the position of a 'precarious feminism'.''
In the autumn of 2019, the Preis der Nationalgalerie will be awarded for the tenth time. It promotes important positions of contemporary art that have gained significance through new artistic approaches and that reflect the liveliness and international scope of the art scene in Germany. Every two years, four artists under forty years of age who live and work in Germany are nominated for the award and presented in a shortlist exhibition. The winner is selected by a panel of experts and the following year is granted a large solo show in one of the venues of the Nationalgalerie. In addition, a catalogue is published at the occasion of the exhibition.
Exhibition: August 16, 2019 - January 12, 2020
Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin
