The 2017 L’art est vivant prize awarded to Dalila Dalléas Bouzar

In partnership with L'art est vivant and The Fine Art Collective, Art Paris Art Fair is launching a new prize this year to support a young talent whose work is on show in the Promises section. L’art est vivant prize is awarded to Dalida Dalléas Bouzar, for her artwork Princess presented by Galerie Cécile Fakhoury (Abidjian).

L'art est vivant is a collective of passionate art enthusiasts and collectors founded in 2014. Every year it supports artists from the emerging contemporary art scene by helping with the production and distribution of their creations, the publication of books and artists’ books and contributing to purchasing and lending art works. It also organises and supports various exhibitions and events.

The 2017 L'art est vivant prize is endowed with:
- the sum of 3,000 euros
- art materials worth 2,000 euros offered by The Fine Art Collective France (Winsor & Newton - Liquitex - Lefranc & Bourgeois - Conté à Paris)

Dalila Dalléas Bouzar, 2017 prizewinner introduces a string of pictures named Princess inspired by Marc Garanger photographs, taken during the Algerian conflict in refugee camps, and commissionned for ID’s creation in order to control population movement by the french army. Women had been compelled then to take off their veil in front of the camera. Her shoots tell the story about her women country, which she identifies herself with. By reappropriating those shoots, she highlights the women dignity in spite of the violence inflicted by the french Army. By seeing them adorned with gold, magnified and odd, it reveals the feeling to face icons through centuries.

The jury chose this artwork because « they have been impressed by the diversity of her artistic proposals ... varieties of items and techniques that she successively uses according to her life history, the places and the meetings that she induced to do. » « We particularly welcome her mastering of drawing and the fact that it is inscribed as the very essence of her creative work».
