Artist shortlist announced during Art Basel Hong Kong

Already in its third year Art Basel and BMW continue their joint initiative to recognize and support emerging artists worldwide. Like a mobile studio, the BMW Art Journey can take artists almost anywhere in the world to develop new ideas and envision new creative projects.

Today, an expert jury announced the next shortlist consisting of three artists showing in Discoveries, the sector for emerging artists, at Art Basel's Hong Kong show: Astha Butail, Julian Charrière and Lin Ke.

Central to Astha Butail’s artistic practice is the use of geometry as a means of inquiry to understand how different composite elements of an entity relate to its whole. Her themes are memory and time, the idea of the archive and collaborative authorship.

At this year’s Art Basel in Hong Kong, Butail is presenting her work titled 'Turning towards pure white' (2017) including an assemblage of wall and floor based elements as well as framed panels and three-dimensional pieces.

Julian Charrière (Dittrich & Schlechtriem, Berlin) designs projects that often stem from fieldwork in remote locations with acute geophysical identities such as volcanoes, ice-fields and radioactive sites.

At Art Basel in Hong Kong Charrière is presenting his work 'Coconut Lead Fondue' (2016), consisting of a series of large format photographs, two vitrine sculptures and an installation in Ke at BANK, Shanghai.

Lin Ke lives and works in Beijing. At Art Basel in Hong Kong, the artist is presenting 'Like Me' (2016), a video recording of a performance and two image based works, showing his exploration of the variety of the World Wide Web, such as applications functioning as catalyst for making art and self-portraiture.

These three shortlisted artists are now invited to develop a proposal for their ideal journey, with the winner to be announced in the early summer of 2017.
