Promoted by Alexandre Daletchine and Gregory Thirion, co-owners of the D+T Project Gallery in Brussels, the 2015 Prize will be held in collaboration with the Ecole nationale supérieure des arts visuels La Cambre.
D+T Project Prize aims to support the students and to give the right candidates willing to pursue their career in the field of arts an insight into an ever more competitive and globalized environment. A jury of professionals, currently active in the visual arts on an international level invited three students (graduated in 2015) to present their works at the D+T Project Gallery.
The Jury is composed of Frederic de Goldschmidt (collector), Angel Vergara (artist), Sam Steverlynck (art critic), Alexandre Daletchine et Gregory Thirion.
Selected artists : Louise BOGHOSSIAN (Sculpture), Charlotte GIGAN (Ceramic), Alice LEENS (Textile Design)
Louise Boghossian, Vertu Sympathique, 2015, plâtre, cuivre, fard à paupière
Although Louise Boghossian
(b. 1992) has studied sculpture, her practice involves a variety of media. Her
inspirations come from specific moments, visual impressions and interpretations
of thoughts or circumstances of the everyday life. Furthermore, Boghossian's
work explores the triviality of materials through the balance between the white
and the color and the interactions with the light. Many of her works refer
to the body, the skin and its relationship with the exterior world. In the
exhibition she presents a mysterious sculpture the Sound of a metallic
hair falling down the steel cylinder that
looks like a white nest made of paraffin and vaseline. Another work refers to
Paradise Birds famous for their splendid wings that they spread during nuptial
Charlotte Gigan, Entrevue,

Charlotte Gigan, Entrevue, 2015, brique, verre coulé, variable dimensions
Construction and urban planning, architecture and shelter represent various sources of inspiration for Charlotte Gigan (b. 1989). These artificially created environments are the link with the human relations that remain the focus of her artistic method. Thus, confronting construction material such as concrete, ceramic, bricks, glass, etc. brings the artist to create objects that follow her distinct intuitions. Her fastidious interest in glass brought her to explore new sculptural horizons that particularly deal with opacity, transparency, strength and fragility, tension and harmony. This subject matter is clearly shown in the sculptures that combine bricks and melted glass. Besides, the ceramic thumbtacks tend to materialise Gigan’s interest in exploring the limits between the private area and the public space and its fragilities.
Alice Leens, Sans Titre, 2015, variable dimensions, diam. 30cm
Alice Leens (b. 1987) usually questions the composition of textile. Her intention is to reveal its essential components and to show its richness and subtlety. Her unstoppable urge to decompose/ recompose is fed by the fascination for the capacity of the few insignificant bits, that once joint together, give access to a nearly limitless strength and structural complexity. Her drawings mean to show this multifaceted variety. The fundament of her overall vocabulary remains the thread and the wire that confirm textile as a proper visual language. Also, the transition from the line towards the plan remains the focus of her research. The circular sculpture Corolle reveals this transition between the thread and the piece of tissue. The recurrent examination of rope’s purpose and its inner tension are revealed by another cylindrical composition.
