On Thursday evening Kirsten Astrup and her partner Maria Bordorff were the lucky and talented receivers of The Remmen Foundation Art Prize. The prize, which is each year given to a young and aspiring artist or artist group, marked this year’s beginning of Art Week Cph.
It was a deeply touched Kirsten Astrup who, along with her partner Maria Bordorff, received The Remmen Foundation Art Prize for her own and their shared artistic work.
The prize was handed over by Remmen Foundation jury member Claus Carstensen who lauded Astrup’s first work Troe og Agtsom as well as the duo’s subsequent Urolige Hjerte with these words:
”Troe og Agtsom, which was Kirsten Astrup’s final project from the art academy, was such an impressive and solid film that it formed the basis for the coming production and Kirsten Astrup’s and Maria Bordorff’s latest film, the vastly more comprehensive and just as impressive Urolige Hjerte.”
The ceremony took place at the beautiful Hotel d’Angleterre, where artists, professionels and Art Week staff members were gathered to celebrate the winners and nominees.
