|Thanks to the generosity of
the initiator and patroness of art, Betty Boulez-Cuykx,
it is now already for the fourth time that the St.Gallen
Textile Museum has the opportunity to exhibit the
selected works of the 5th International Betonac
Competition on its premises.
In the invitation to the
competition, prospective participants were asked to make
artistic in textile materials and textile techniques, and
to display a certain transparency.
The selected works could first be seen in the provincial Beguine church of Sint Truiden from 23 September to 29 October 2000, where the prizes were also awarded.
|The young Japanese artist Kaori Hosozawa was awarded the first prize for her extremely sensitive work in several parts, Pearl Oyster. Her work is characterised by its freshness and poetic nature; it allows us to participate in the artist's own powers of imagination. The Encouragement Prize went to Erna Van Sambeek for her work Lacy Pillow, which is made of hard, agressive barbed wire and constitutes an aesthetically appealing provocation.||
|After the Tonder Textile
Museum in Denmark and the Tilburg Textile Museum in the
Netherlands, the St.Gallen Textile Museum is the fourth
venue for the exhibition.
The catalogue for the exhibition is in three languages.
Dr. Cordula M. Kessler Loetscher, Curator, Marianne Gächter-Weber, Curator
