Nikita Kadan is winner of the supporting prize in the Future Generation Art Prize 2014

The Future Generation Art Prize established by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation in 2009 is a worldwide contemporary art prize to discover, recognize and give long-term support to a future generation of artists. The Prize is a major contribution to the open participation of younger artists in the dynamic cultural development of societies in global transition.
The Prize is an innovative new international award for artists up to 35 years of age, investing in the artistic development and new production of works. Awarded through a competition, judged by a distinguished jury, the Prize is founded on the idea of generosity, a network of outstanding patron artists and institutional partners, and a highly democratic application procedure.

Jenny Watson was born in Melbourne, Australia in 1951. She majored in painting and later took an Education qualification. She always creates works which reflect what is on her mind, memories of childhood and her relation to the outside world. She often paints on colourful and patterned fabric or linen and also makes works on paper. More specifically she paints animals and situations she directly experiences and memories from her suburban Australian upbringing. Up to this point in her career she has had sixty solo exhibitions in Australia, as well as more than fifty solo exhibitions in Europe, Asia, India, New Zealand and the United States. She was the Australian representative in the 1993 Venice Biennale. In Japan, she had the exhibition entitled "Child's Play" at Art Gallery, Yokohama Museum of Art in 2003, shown here again. The new works exhibited in Transit gallery were made at CAMAC, Marnay-sur-Seine, France in July and August 2014, using locally sourced fabrics such as red and maroon furnishing fabric, chiffons, and voiles.

Jenny Watson is geboren in Australië in 1951 en behaalde een master in de schilderkunst. In haar werk creëert ze reflecties van hetgene dat zich zowel in haar hoofd afspeelt, als herinneringen aan haar jeugd en relaties met de buitenwereld. Meestal schildert ze op kleurrijk gedessineerde stof en linnen, maar ze maakt eveneens werk op papier. In het bijzonder schildert ze dieren, situaties die zij rechtstreeks ervaart en haar herinneringen aan haar voorstedelijke opvoeding in Australië. Tot zover bestaat haar carrière uit zestig solotentoonstellingen in Australië, alsook meer dan vijftig solotentoonstellingen in Europa, Azië, India, Nieuw-Zeeland en de Verenigde Staten. Verder vertegenwoordigde ze Australië in 1993 op de Biënnale van Venetië en ontving ze verscheidene onderscheidingen en prijzen. In Japan had ze een tentoonstelling Child’s Play in het Yokohoma Museum of Art in 2003, die nu opnieuw in galerie Transit wordt getoond. Child”s Play was geïnspireerd op Jenny Watson’s eerdere bezoek aan Japan, waarbij ze geïntrigeerd was door de obsessie voor ‘kawaii’ objecten en afbeeldingen uit de populaire Japanse cultuur. Zo tracht ze deze obsessie te koppelen aan haar herinneringen uit haar jeugd. Hiernaast toont galerie Transit Garden of Eden, nieuwe werken die gemaakt zijn tijdens een artist-in-residence in CAMAC, Marnay-sur-Seine te Frankrijk in juli en augustus 2014. Hiervoor gebruikte ze lokaal geproduceerde stoffen zoals rode en donkerrode meubelstof, chiffons en voiles.

 

next exhibition:  Yazan Khalili  |  Aliens  |  15.02 - 22.03.2015

A story about a group of astronauts returning to a landscape they think they left, they are faced with unexpected scenery which makes them wonder if this act of return is real, or if all returns are fictional!

Transit art gallery

ENG
Transit was founded in 1988 in Leuven, Belgium by Dirk Vanhecke and Bert de Leenheer. The gallery moved to Mechelen in 1998.
Transit exhibits and promotes contemporary art.
The gallery is housed in an art déco building (1934) where art works are shown in an informal context.
Transit believes that every way of expression that an artist chooses can be a valid way, therefore different ways of expression (painting, photography, performance, sculpture, installation, video, audio, concept, ...) can find their place in the gallery and in the office that also serves as permanent exhibition space.
