Atelier BABEL 2022/2023
Ana Dunjić is awarded NOK 100,000 for her participation in the project Atelier BABEL
We have now finished processing several highly qualified applications for the third edition of Atelier BABEL. The Babel Committee* has done a thorough job in selecting the latest candidate, and it is with great pleasure that we announce that Ana Dunjić will use Babel as a studio in the project period 2022/2023.
Ana Dunjić has presented the committee with a multi-layered and thoughtful project that utilizes the act of soap production to draw connections between war, survivalism and rationing while growing up in Serbia, to that of the former Lade Soap Factory here in Trondheim. We are excited to support and bring this conceptually rigorous proposal to the community that is grounded in the history, but reaches across borders to address our universal concerns.
– Brittany Nelson on behalf of the jury
With the project Atelier BABEL, BABEL gives three Trondheim-based artists the opportunity and challenge to use BABEL as a studio for two months (December / January), with a subsequent exhibition. The selected artists are awarded NOK 100,000 each, which covers the artist’s salary and remuneration for the two months. With this project, BABEL visningsrom for kunst aims to lift the discussion about the artists’ work situation, by offering healthy and good working conditions.
* The Babel Committee jury consisted of Tore Reisch, Torhild Aukan, Carlos A. Correia, Tobias Liljedahl, Brittany Nelson, Lena Katrine Sokki and Heidi-Anett Haugen, as secretary and referent.
Thanks to the Trondheim Municipality’s Kulturfond that makes this project possible, and thank you to all the artists who applied.
