Manu Blázquez (Valencia, 1978) has won the 10th Ankaria Artist’s Book Prize with his work entitled “Grand pas de deux”, in which he continues his line of artistic enquiry into the search for systems that respond to the combination of the fundamental concepts of space and time.
The second prize went to Mercè Soler for her work “Cosas que nunca te dije”, while the Javier Rosón Prize, which recognises works by young creators under 28 years of age, went to the Argentinean Carla Gasparrini (Buenos Aires, 1997) for her work “Camino”.
The Ankaria Artist’s Book Prize, organised by the Ankaria Foundation, has received in its tenth edition a total of 290 works by as many artists from a total of 30 countries.
The Prize is endowed with 3,000 euros for the first work selected and 1,500 euros for the second. In addition, the winner of the Javier Rosón Special Prize receives a prize of 1,000 euros. In addition to these prizes, the winning works will be included in the travelling exhibition “La Palabra Pintada” (The Painted Word).
