Bertille Bak, The Nominees, Marcel Duchamp Prize 2023 at the Centre Pompidou Paris, France
We are happy to announce the participation of Bertille Bak in the exhibition The Nominees, which will bring together the works and installations of the four artists nominated for the 2023 edition of the Marcel Duchamp Prize. The exhibition will be hosted by the Centre Pompidou at the Galerie 4, from October 4, 2023 to January 8, 2024.
On this occasion, Bertille Bak will present her new project Nature morte. Partie 1: l’hiver which takes as its starting point the French calendar festivals and traditions symbolized by a plant emblem. The video installation presented for the Marcel Duchamp Prize will be the first part of a larger research structured in four stages, corresponding to the four seasons. This first part focuses on the winter period.
Bertille Bak is one of the four nominees for the Marcel Duchamp Prize 2023. Cédric Fauq, Chief curator of CAPC Bordeaux, is rapporteur for Bertille Bak and will present her work to the jury.
The laureate will be announced on October 16, 2023.
Created in 2000 by Gilles Fuchs, Founder and president of ADIAF, the Marcel Duchamp Prize aims to highlight the creative abundance of the French scene at the beginning of the 21st century and to support artists in their international career.
Each year, this collectors’ prize distinguishes one laureate among four French artists or artists living in France, working in the field of plastic and visual arts: installation, video, painting, photography, sculpture, performance and so on. Like the important artist who lends his name to it – and with the complicity of the Marcel Duchamp Association, which supports this initiative – it distinguishes the most significant artists of the French scene of their generation and encourages all new artistic forms that stimulate creation.
