Els Dietvorst winner of the BelgianArtPrize 2021 edition
‘La Jeune Peinture Belge – De Jonge Belgische Schilderkunst’ is delighted to announce the awarding of the BelgianArtPrize 2021 to Els Dietvorst.
The Jury is particularly impressed by the radical way in which Els Dietvorst has developed and built her practice since the 1990s. The coherence between the oeuvre and the person is also impressive.
Dietvorst’s work often situates itself defiantly outside of the traditional commercial and institutional art circuits, and proves that an independent oeuvre is not only possible, but that it can also be extremely valuable.
Els Dietvorst will exhibit new work in Bozar in autumn 2021 (13.10.’21 – 02.01.’22)
