Art Critics Award 2017
The prize for art criticism, awarded by a jury of artists, will be announced in September 2016 by the Kunsthalle Wien and the association Kunstwerft. Moussa Kone and Erwin Uhrmann run this project since ten years.
The first two original etchings of Moussa Kone are now available in a small edition of 15 pieces at Instant Edition in Austria.
"For me drawing with pen and ink comes close to writing. Surfaces are theoretically occupied and condensed by hatching in black meshes of line. In the blank spaces, the white sheet of paper itself, remains room for the viewer’s own thoughts. The line possesses the power of definition and renders the world something that can be experienced in an abstract manner. It draws clear boundaries, dividing and splitting into left and right, up and down. Relations and values emerge, hierarchies and social fixations become visible."
