On November 8, 2022, the Jury met with its President, Chiara Parisi, Director of the Centre Pompidou-Metz, and the heads of Carré sur Seine : Maria Giovanna Gilotta, Isabelle Lefort and Florence Provost to present the finalists voted by the jury: Raphaëlle Bertran, Bryce Delplanque, Pauline-Rose Dumas, Cristina Escobar, Jérôme Gelès, Mélina Ghorafi, Juliette Green, Michel Jocaille, Émeric Lhuisset, Marie Mons, Tami Notsani, Jonathan Pepe, Luca Resta, Clara Rivault and Silina Syan.
Following an exciting deliberation, given the richness of the artistic approach of the finalists, the Prize Carré sur Seine 2022 was awarded to :
- Raphaëlle Bertran, for the strength and balance invested in an analytical approach to painting that anchors the latter in a new narrative and demonstrates the power that can emanate from a work of research that is woven while remaining close to human intimacy;
-Emeric Lhuisset, for his ability to represent the controversial facts of contemporary geopolitical history, challenging the official and canonized formulas of historical and journalistic narratives, for the rights of global citizenship in the post-colonial era;
-Luca Resta, for his ability to address issues such as provenance, descent, and the memory of the everyday from a contemporary perspective that combines lyricism and irony.
The three prizes will be awarded to the winners during the big collective exhibition that will bring together, for the 10th anniversary of the Prize Carré sur Seine, in February 2023, all the winners in the big exhibition room of POUSH. Yvannoé Krugerdirector of POUSH, Laure Colliex and Hervé Digne, co-founders of Manifesto, welcome and support this new exhibition, curated by Chiara Parisi, Carré sur Seine and POUSH.
