Basel, September 21, 2021. The Baloise Art Prize was awarded to Hana Miletic and Cameron Clayborn. The prize of CHF 30,000 will be awarded to the Statements sector of Art Basel by a jury of international experts. The prize includes the acquisition by Baloise of a set of works by the winners, which are donated to two important museums in Europe: Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart, Nationalgalerie – Staatliche Museen zu Berlin and MUDAM, Luxembourg.

This year’s jury includes: Marie-Noëlle Farcy, curator / collection manager, MUDAM, Luxembourg; Grazyna Kulczyk, art collector and founder of Muzeum Susch; Stéphane Aquin, director of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts; Sven Beckstette, curator at the Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart, Berlin and Martin Schwander, fine arts advisor at Baloise, president of the jury.

Hana Miletic’s work strikes a chord, albeit low-key, in today’s world. His woven transcriptions of mundane repairs to cars and buildings speak of economic hardship and personal resilience, as does the transnational dimension of his project between Pristina and Basel. Its process itself, the slow and careful act of weaving, significantly echoes the deeper task we are all engaged in.

Cameron Clayborn’s sculptures in his homegrown series hang from the ceiling like cocoons. By appearing to stand on tiptoe, they control the distance, and yet their materiality prompts viewers to take a closer look. Oscillating between distance and proximity, solidity and fragility, Clayborn informs his work with great vitality and an impressive physical presence.

During Art Basel 2021 (24.-26.9.) All the winners will be presented at the Baloise Studio (Hall 2.2.).
