Art Students Share Top Prize

 

Two Nelson students, Haiyun Jiang and Erika Isaksen, have shared the year's top award for visual arts and design from Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology.

The Jens Hansen Excellence Award in Visual Arts and Design is presented for Studio Practice in the final year of the Bachelor of Arts and Media programme.

NMIT creative industries arts tutor, Catharine Salmon, says the two students have quite different creative practices, Haiyun works in graphic design and Erika Isaksen with video installation. Haiyun (Harry) Jiang from China used T-shirts as a medium for his exhibition work, exploring in a humorous way, cultural, societal and economic relations between Chinese and Western societies. Erika's digital installation explores the absurd repetitiveness of the everyday as a crucial part of a fulfilling and meaningful life
