Eden Latham winner Piket Art Prize 2018

27 November 2018

Eden Latham, alumna Fine Arts 2017, is the winner of the Piket Art Prize 2018 in the category Painting.

To put a stop to decay, to the passing of time, and to attempt to preserve what is transient; Eden Latham confronts these vast themes with simple interventions and everyday materials. Discarded utilitarian objects seem to remember their erstwhile functions: the contours of a sleeper in a mattress, the impression of a wardrobe in a carpet. For Eden these are points of departure in a process of wrapping, rubbing, encasing, in order to conserve corruption. She produces work so powerful, that it seduces you despite its filthiness.
