Dedicated to the valorisation of the contemporary art scene, Art on Paper, in collaboration with Bozar and with the support of EECKMAN ART & INSURANCE, has launched an appeal for artists and art students who have dedicated themselves to the art of drawing and its myriad possibilities, to submit their projects. Following the appeal, the exhibition has been flooded with some 380 submissions from around the globe!

The jury, which is composed of Paul Dujardin/Bozar, Catherine Henkinet/l’ISELP, Marc Ruyters/H ART, Cédric Liénart de Jeude/Eckman Art & Insurance and Pascale Viscardy/l’Art Même, is happy to announce the winner of the Eeckman Prize for contemporary drawing.

Seduced by the elegance of her lines and purity of approach, the jury chose the young artist Anastasija Pandilovska, whose work will be exhibited to the public for the duration of the exhibition in a dedicated room.

Born in Macedonia in 1991, Anastasija Pandilovska is currently living and working in Amsterdam where she is continuing her training at the department of Inter-Architecture of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie. Her work is rooted in what makes up the essence of a drawing, the line, which she meticulously applies to the paper, and then coaxes towards an inquiry into the time spent looking at and reading the drawing. As hinted at by the artist, the drawing should be construed as a text written in a language whose grammar could be invented by anybody. Open shapes, detached lines, scattered across large sheets which are then superimposed, or which might share the pages of a notebook, inviting the viewer/reader to turn them over, in a sort of gradual discovery, saccadically, ever so delicately.
