A shower of prizes for the young artists and designers of KABK

KABK Award

The final exam exhibition of the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (KABK) ended on Saturday the 7th of July with a shower of prizes for the young creative talent who completed a KABK degree. Wendy Oakes (Photography) received the Aanmoedigingsprijs (encouragement prize) from Stroom Den Haag, Maarten Schenkeveld (Furniture Design) the Paul Schuitema Prize and Anton Lamberg (Graphic Design) the Royal Academy Prize. Marline van der Eijk received the Overduin Prize.

Anton Lamberg received the Royal Academy Prize from director Jack Verduyn Lunel for his work ‘It’s Simple’. Lamberg experimented with translating invisible structures into a graphical design. The structures in the experiment are aimed at evolution, nature and written language. The jury, consisting of the board of governors and all the KABK professors, were most of all impressed by the research and the quality of the three different forms Lamberg chose to express the result.

Paul Schuitema-prize

The Paul Schuitema Prize 2012 was won by Maarten Schenkeveld (Interior Architecture and Furniture Design). Schenkeveld explored the restrictions and freedoms of (furniture) design through a series of experiments in his work ‘One Piece a Day’. He managed to complete his work in a limited space of time and with carefully selected techniques and materials. The jury commented on how the work displayed a curiosity, enjoyment, discipline, research, but above all the will to have such an inherent knowledge of the material and processes that their characteristics and attributes essentially become the DNA of the produced form.

Stroom Aanmoedigingsprijs

Wendy Oakes (Photography) received the Stroom Aanmoedingsprijs (encouragement prize). Her film ‘Dream King’ follows a couple who spend a week in style in a castle with family and friends in honour of their ten year wedding anniversary. An unexpected event damages expectations, disturbs dreams and throws the main characters roughly back into reality. One of the reasons the jury were so impressed with the work was due to Oakes’ talent to express so much with so few words. The jury also thought it was very clever how she kept the key moment out of sight and managed to divert attention to a bigger personal story hidden behind the events.

Overduin Prize

New this year was the Overduijn Prize, presented by Henk and Ria Overduin. Henk Overduin was assistant director at the Municipality Museum The Hague. Marline van der Eijk (Fine Arts) received the prize for her stilled presentation which possessed both a poetic and philosophical quality. The jury report said of her presentation that it revealed the inquisitive mind of an artist who profiles herself as a real conceptual artist. Someone who marvels at the wonders of reality and who knows how to portray it in clever way.
