OBJECTIVES OF THE “CONTEMPORARY TALENTS” COMPETITION Through the “Contemporary Talents” competition, the Foundation wishes: to encourage artists to appropriate this theme which has belonged to the history of art since the beginning of time. to bring them, through art work, to reflect, observe, analyse and criticise, to divert and use water, its properties, its symbols, its tools, its challenges, to offer the artists a platform to reach all kinds of audiences. to foster exchanges and networking with cultural players. to develop the public’s awareness, and in particular to arouse an interest in contemporary art in young people, and enable them, through the water theme, to feel and get a better perception of the diversity of views of the world. PRESENTATION OF THE THEME: WATER Water, essential to all life and to the development of mankind, is a multi-faceted and yet singular element. It is symbolically one of the natural elements, with air, fire and earth, which make up the universe. It is at heart of mythology and religion. It is a sign and a symbol, and constantly changes form. Water is a natural resource, of course, but for a large part of mankind, it is the rarest asset. COMPETITION RULES This competition is open to candidates of all nationalities, all ages, and in the following six disciplines of the plastic arts: painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, photography and video. For disciplines installation and sculpture, the artists have the possibility of submitting either existing works or projects. For the four other disciplines, only existing works may be presented.
