The winners of the 3rd Swiss Life Prize in 4 Hands are known. Composer and songwriter Ruppert Pupkin and photographer Oan Kim were awarded for their project Digital After-Love, what will remain of our loves? Their creation is defined as “a wandering love sometimes frenetic and sometimes suave, digital remains of a love obsession, musical and photographic kaleidoscope in the urban worlds of 2017.”
The Swiss Life Award was designed in 2014 by the Swiss Life Foundation, to reveal emerging talents, working to unite photography and music in their creations. The jury of the 2017 edition was composed of Alain Fleischer (director of Fresnoy – national studio of contemporary arts), Benoît Rivero (publisher, Actes Sud), Eric de Visscher (director, Museum of music – Cité de la musique) , Bruno Racine (president of the Fresnoy – national studio of contemporary arts), Charles Relecom (president, Swiss Life France), Claire Moulène (co-curator, The dream of forms, Palais de Tokyo), Vincent Bessières (journalist, Jazzman) , Guy Boyer (editorial director, Connaissance des arts) and Tanguy Polet (director of the customer and digital transformation division, Swiss Life).
The artist duo will see their sound and visual creation exhibited at the Musée de la Musique – Cité de la Musique as part of the Robert Doisneau exhibition, presented in December 2018. An increased publication of music is also awaited at Actes Sud.
