AL And AL Win The Liverpool Art Prize 2009 – Elizabeth Willow Is The People’s Choice April 23, 2009

al-and-al_eternal-youthAt a packed special Awards Ceremony in the Wake Theatre at Novas Contemporary Urban Centre tonight, AL and AL were presented with the prize of £2000 as winners of the Liverpool Art Prize 2009.
Also after counting over 1000 votes cast by visitors to the gallery it was announced that Elizabeth Willow was the winner of the £1000 ‘People’s Choice’ prize.

The ceremony was hosted by artinliverpool.com who set up and organise the prize which started in 2008 during Liverpool’s reign as European Capital of Culture.

For the Art Prize exhibition AL and AL presented new work including ‘I want to run in my mountains’ (2009) which features ‘Biped 00’ running through a shower of pink triangles high in the mountains as ‘Biped 01’ is measured and recorded in a motion tracking volume.

The anaglyph video works have been commissioned for an exhibition in the city of Mechelen Belgium, the location from which the trains destined for Auschwitz departed. The pink triangle was the Nazi German symbol for homosexuals, many of whom were murdered by the regime. The scientific quest to measure, quantify and ultimately control human behaviour is mirrored in the reflective world of the Avatar series where AL and AL’s studio performances have been transformed into biped animations using motion tracking biometric technology.

Also their ‘The ‘Suit of Cups’ (2009) places ‘Biped 00’ and ‘01’ as the central protagonists in a selection from the Tarot Deck; playing cards which are used to contemplate an individual’s predicament and divinate a possible future. The new rational world of measuring human behaviour is composited into the old irrational landscapes of superstitious symbolism.

The other shortlisted artists are: Terry Duffy, McCoy Wynne, Nicki McCubbing and Richard Meaghan

Main Sponsors: Duncan Sheard Glass Chartered Accountants (Main Prize), Arthur Diamond Design (People’s Choice Prize, printing & signage), Alexander MacGregor (Catalogue design & production)

The judges:
•    Alex Corina – Artist
•    Imogen Stidworthy – Artist, Winner of the 2008 Liverpool Art Prize
•    Amrit & Rabindra Singh (The Singh Twins) – Artists and winners of the 2008 People’s Choice Prize
•    Claire Hamilton – presenter for BBC Radio Merseyside
•    Paul Hyland (Duncan Sheard Glass – Accountants)
•    Jay Mitton (Arthur Diamond Design – Signs and Printers)

tracey-emin-02Liverpool Cathedral was last night announced as the first winner of the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce Arts Award.

The award is designed to stimulate Liverpool’s tradition of patronage by rewarding the company or organisation who funded the best publicly available art in Liverpool in the last five years.

The piece, titled ‘For You’ by Tracy Emin, RA takes the form of a pink neon wall mounted sign in Tracey’s own handwriting carrying the message ‘I felt you and I knew you loved me’ The judges were impressed with this dual personal and spiritual message in such a sacred space.

The judging panel made up of the crème of the Liverpool arts establishment ; Lewis Biggs Director of  Liverpool Biennial, Brenda Parkerson, Business Development Manager of Arts & Business, John Entwistle, sponsor and Christoph Grunenberg Director of Tate Gallery Liverpool felt that the Cathedral’s on-going work with such a cutting edge contemporary artist had produced a very bold and courageous piece.

The award sponsor, John Entwistle commented: “I’m very keen that this competition encourages the tradition of patronage of the arts in Liverpool and I’m delighted that work of this calibre is being commissioned in Liverpool.”
