Saskia Jetten, teacher orientation course at KABK, wins 2 awards

Orientation Course Award

KABK teacher Saskia Jetten not only won the 'Prix Banque Nationale Groupe financier du Biennale d'estampe contemporaine de Trois Riviéres' but also received a 'residency prize' at the largest Graphic biennale of Canada.

Saskia Jetten, teacher and former student at the Royal Academy of Art, received the 'Residency prize' and 'Prix Banque nationale Groupe financier du Biennale d' estampe contemporaine de Trois Riviéres' based on the seven works she submitted. Quote from the jury:

'The jury unanimously appreciated the originality of your approach, as well as the spatial organization of your work and its character at once intimist and intriguing. A fresh look on printmaking.’

As one of the six awardwinners at the Canadian graphic biennale Saskia Jetten also received the 'residency prize'.

'Her constant exploration of the limits of printmaking, seen in her use of textiles and by her installation work, has inspired the AGAP. Her marriage of various techniques is precisely in line with the Atelier-Galerie Alain Piroir’s mandate to promote contemporary printmakers.'

Next summer Jetten will be in Montréal to work in a gallery AGAP ( together with master publishers. Next, there will be a solo exhibition for six weeks and she will lead a masterclass.
