SECOND LAUREATEAward Visual Arts Asse 2010” - Belgium - November 19th, 2010

Jury:

Jan Hoet sr. (museum director, curator),
from his awarding speech:“ … it’s surprising and remarkable how Erwin Clauws can capture such an immense space with so little means like a few stronge lines in soft pastel on a giant paper, and at the same time tearing this new space open towards another dimension. So much power and feeling … and we don’t even know that artist …”

Marc Ruyters (publisher art journal H>art),
Mieke Mels (art historian, curator),
Jan De Smedt (gallery De Ziener, Asse)
Geert Heyvaert (chairman, town secretary)
