Villa Romana Prizewinners 2013
Four artists receive fellowships in the renowned artists’ house

The Villa Romana Prizewinners 2013 have been announced: Shannon Bool, Mariechen Danz, Heide Hinrichs, and Daniel Maier-Reimer will begin a ten-month residency in the artist’s house in Florence. They have access to a studio in the Villa Romana and will receive further support in the form of a monthly stipend. This year’s jurors—the artist Ulrike Grossarth and Janneke de Vries, director of the Gesellschaft für aktuelle Kunst (GAK) Bremen—selected the four artists from ten candidates. The Villa Romana Prize is awarded by the Villa Romana Association and financed by the Deutsche Bank Stiftung, the Federal Commissioner for Culture and Media, and additional private sponsors. The Villa Romana Prize is not only the oldest German art prize, but also the longest-standing cultural commitment on the part of Deutsche Bank and its foundations: the bank has been supporting this renowned award for contemporary art in Germany since 1929.

The 1972-born Canadian Shannon Bool lives in Berlin; her art has been part of the Deutsche Bank Collection for quite some time. Several of her works on paper were included in 25, the anniversary exhibition of the corporate collection. Bool combines her drawings, collages, rugs, and murals to create a variety of new arrangements. She constructs entire rooms in which high and low, relics of modern, everyday, and pop culture merge. Bool’s work can currently be seen in the large survey show Made in Germany 2 in Hanover.

Mariechen Danz also lives in Berlin. Over the past several years, the artist, born 1980 in Dublin, has attracted international attention with her unique blend of live performance, drawing, video clip, and sculptural installation. She calls systems of knowledge and the power structures inscribed therein into question. Danz has taken part in numerous international exhibitions, including Younger than Jesus (2009) in the New Museum, New York, and the 2011 show based in Berlin.

Heide Hinrichs, born 1976 in Oldenburg, currently lives in Brussels. Hinrichs works with ambivalent sculptural installations that delve into the meaning of things, their locations and memories. Her art addresses the relationship between language and body, subjective and architectonic spaces. The Heidelberger Kunstverein is currently dedicating a solo show to Hinrichs’s work.

Daniel Maier-Reimer lives and works in Hamburg. For over 20 years, the 1968-born artist has been taking extensive trips to places like Lapland, Iceland, China, and Iran, but also along the Vorder Rhine and the boundaries of the state of Hamburg. He travels by foot and in the end brings back only a small number of photographs, a kind of concentrate of his impressions and feelings.

The Villa Romana is a place of contemporary artistic production and international exchange. Only ten minutes from Florence’s city center, it combines the peace of a park property with the urban reality of a major city. With exhibitions, a wide range of events, and invitations to international guest artists, the Villa Romana carries on a dialogue between producers and the public, positions itself in an international artistic context, and furthers communication with Mediterranean cultures. In Florence, a city rich in art historical treasures, the Villa Romana defines itself as a forum for contemporary art that initiates cooperative projects with international partners and dialogues with the public on site.
