The list of artists selected for the 9th edition of Prix MAIF pour la sculpture has been published. The finalists are: Guillaume Aubry, François-Noé Fabre, Raphaël Faon & Andres Salgado, Pascal Jounier Trémelo and Laurence de Leersnyder.
The 9th edition of Prix MAIF pour la sculpture provides an emerging artist the possibility to create a brass sculpture. To be selected, the artists had to prepare a model of their project at 1/1 scale as well as a video, allowing the jury to make its decision. The MAIF stakeholders were also invited to vote in the final jury which included Dominique Mahé, MAIF chairman, Chiara Parisi, Director of Cultural Programs of the Monnaie de Paris, Marianne Lanavère, Director of the Centre international d’art et du paysage de l’île de Vassivière, Emmanuel Daca, head of workshop for the Fonderie Chapon de Bobigny, as well as Anne Langlois, Director of 40mcube in Rennes, Marie-Anne Ben Maïz, Gaël Charbeau and Vincent Barré.
The winner of the 9th edition of Prix MAIF pour la sculpture will be announced at the end of September and the winning sculpture will be made in two copies, one for the artist, and one for the MAIF.
