Artist exploring feminist ecology wins Marcel Duchamp Prize, δημοσίευση ArtReview [18/10/2022]Marilena Pateraki
Mimosa Echard, whose work explores permaculture and the relationship between living and non-living materials from a feminist and ecological perspective, has won the Marcel Duchamp Prize, France’s most prestigious art accolade.
Her early work includes A/B (2016), a series of wall-mounted plexiglass display boxes containing botanical and manufactured medicines mixed to create an image akin to an abstract painting. I Still Dream of Orgonon (2021) likewise is one of a series of plastic drinks bottles stuffed full of organic and inorganic matter, including old batteries and beads. For her recent solo show at Palais de Tokyo in Paris she developed a computer game in which visitors could explore the cavities of an organism in a perpetual state of transformation, inspired by the life cycle of the myxomycete, a class of slime mould.
Echard won the €35,000 (£30,450) prize over a shortlist that included Giulia Andreani, Iván Argote and Philippe Decrauzat.
