Indonesian video artist Timoteus Anggawan Kusno (b.1989) is the winner of the Han Nefkens Foundation - Loop Barcelona Video Art Production Award 2021, in collaboration with the Fundació Joan Miró. Established by the Han Nefkens Foundation in collaboration with Loop Barcelona and the Fundació Joan Miró in 2018, the Han Nefkens Foundation - Loop Barcelona Video Art Production Award aims to increase contemporary artistic production in the video art field by supporting artists of Asian origin or nationality.
Kusno was selected for his alluring multi layered video works that construct a powerful language about our contemporary relationship as humans with the world. The jury highlights Kusno’s "deft use of sound in his practice, in addition to his compelling use of mythology and traditional art forms... His video works demonstrate a level of maturity through a visual and economic efficiency."
The artist will receive $15.000 funding for the production of a new work which will be presented first at the Fundació Joan Miró and at a later stage, the new production will be presented also at MoCA Taipei; ILHAM, Kuala Lumpur, Centre d’Art Contemporain, Genève; Art Hub Copenhagen and Inside Out Art Museum, Beijing.
