The jury awarded Sabine Hertig the Alfred Latour Young Artist Prize with a grant of CHF 10,000.–.
If Sabine Hertig masters the techniques of painting and drawing, the jury wanted to highlight the originality of her collage work. It is her perfect management of formats, gestures and tools that bring out and underline the importance of the net and the blur, the detail and the main subject – a bit like photography invites us to read an image – that seduced. A work that most often relates to the creation of extraordinary landscapes in which we guess the use of tools such as sandpaper; a personal and strong approach which places the spectator in front of a monumental work, at the same time classic, expressive and extremely contemporary.
