Eden Latham winner Piket Art Prize 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.
