La Poudriere at UNICUM, Slovenia 2009

2nd prize: Valentina Savić, Republic of Serbia, for the artwork Poudriere

Old-fashioned shape of powder compact is a nostalgic object with mysterious content. Half-open gives impression of simultaneous opening and closing. It hides the abstract landscape in which the reality of applicable object, that we first noticed, is breaking. The whiteness of unworked surface of the porcelain yet stresses its timelessness and loneliness in the space.
