The Prize

"Les Ancêtres (Antenati)" by Cécile Guicheteau.

Features:

Technique: Oil and mixed media on partially patinated iron plate
Dimensions: 70 x 100 cm
Year: 2000

The Artwork:

Our identity is a complex issue, but many think it was passed down to us from our ancestors, through their DNA and from the traditions of our land.
It is surprising to discover a strong, fascinating identity, and on the other hand to feel more and more often orphans of this rich baggage, leaving it out, forgetting it, or simply ignoring it to follow and be overwhelmed by a society without culture, without a face.

The Artist:

Cécile Guicheteau, 1974 Cholet (FR), is a contemporary artist. After graduating in art from the Pivaut institute in Nantes, for years she has worked in Paris as a decorator for television and collaborated with numerous galleries. In 2008 she published "Tortueuse Fantasy", with Michel Archimbaud, author of the last interviews with Francis Bacon. She has carried out several exhibitions abroad: Italy, USA, Canada, Japan and the Grand Palais in Paris. In 2016 she completed a permanent exhibition at the Di Tucheng Museum in China after spending 45 days there for an artistic residence. In 2017/2018 she exhibited at the Torre dos Cielos gallery in Japan and later won the UNESCO Open-Air Museum project (2019) in Praiano, on the Amalfi Coast. Her works are present in museums and private collections.
She says about herself: I don't try to be a witness of my time, I don't try to comment on anything, the universe that I express is part of my inner world, stuff of writing or legends.
