Villa Romana Prizewinners Announced for 2010

Anna Heidenhain, Sebastian Dacey, Anna Möller, and Martin Pfeifle are the new recipients of the Villa Romana Prize for 2010. At a meeting in Florence on June 6, the new fellows were selected by this year’s jury, comprised of Susanne Gaensheimer, Director of the Museum für Moderne Kunst in Frankfurt, and the artist Rita McBride, who lives in Neuss. The Villa Romana Prize includes a ten-month fellowship at the artist’s house in Florence, a free studio, and a monthly stipend. The painter Max Klinger purchased the Villa Romana in 1905 to provide artists with a generous working situation in Florence. The Villa Romana Prize is not only the oldest German art prize, but also the longest standing instance of cultural commitment on the part of Deutsche Bank. The prize is offered by the Villa Romana Association and funded by the Deutsche Bank Foundation, the Federal Commissioner for Culture and Media, and additional private sponsors.

Anna Heidenhain, born 1979 in Wiesbaden, studied at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf; she has been living in Istanbul since 2007. Heidenhain’s artistic work has increasingly shifted from sculptural form towards social space and the ambivalent zone between art and design, object, and representation. In 2006, Anna Heidenheim received an artist’s grant to work at the Goyang National Art Studio in Korea.

Sebastian Dacey, born 1982 in London, studied first at the Art College Wimbledon and subsequently at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Munich. He lives in Berlin. Dacey’s oil paintings employ abstract and figurative elements, exploring their connection both to the painted ground and to art history. Over the past several years, Dacey has exhibited at the Kunstverein Heilbronn and the Kunstbau Lenbachhaus in Munich, among others.

Anna Möller, born 1980 in Hamburg, studied at the Hochschule für bildende Künste Hamburg. The relationship between body and concept plays a key role in her installations, paper works, and videos. From 2004 – 2008, Möller ran the exhibition space Pudelkollektion (Poodle Collection) in the Golden Pudel Club in Hamburg together with Hannes Loichinger and Tillmann Terbuyken.

Martin Pfeifle, born 1975 in Stuttgart, graduated from the Dusseldorf Kunstakademie in 2004 with a master’s degree under Hubert Kiecol. He won a Wilhelm Lehmbruck grant the same year. His work is characterized by large-scale constructions that mutate the existing space into a shell of physical experience of shifting and expansion. Pfeifle has already created numerous interventions in interior and exterior space, including at the Westfälische Landesmuseum in Münster, the Neuer Kunstverein in Aachen, and the Lehmbruck Museum in Duisburg.
