Award for Emerging Asian Artists 2015
The Hugo Boss Asia Art Award is at the forefront of emerging artists in Asia, discovering and supporting new talent. An exquisite catalog chronicling the second edition of the award is presented in an over-the-top, lush, oversized publication. Projects by the six nominated artists, all born in early 1980s—Huang Po-Chih (Taiwan), Moe Satt (Myanmar), Vandy Rattana (Cambodia), Maria Taniguchi (Philippines), Yang Xinguang and Guan Xiao (Mainland China)—are presented in full-bleed color illustrations luxuriously printed on thick cover stock that portray the artists’ installations and processes along with accompanying essays offering insights into each artist’s practices and reflecting on the rapid changes and key challenges within these regions. The projects range from Rattana’s poetic photo series and videos on American bombing sites around Cambodia and their effect on the landscape and its inhabitants to Hugo Boss award winner Maria Tanaguchi’s brick wall paintings conveying the abject violence of frontiers and borders.
