THE WINNERS (archive)
















I am proud to announce the winner of the Emma Hack Art Prize 2015 as Youngsoon Jin.
Emma Hack Art Prize People's Choice 2015 is Che Chorley.

'The work that we have chosen at the official winner of the Emma Hack Art Prize touches gently on the impactful nature in which we as humans, take nature and control it for our needs, a perfect example of the theme, ‘Humanity in Nature’.  The artwork is executed beautifully’ - Emma Hack

Winner Emma Hack Art Prize 2015
Youngsoon Jin - 'Omelette'

I held the discarded eggshell that was destined for the bin after making an omelette. The stamp on eggs are id codes which tell you where the eggs come from. Its industry-made stamp contrasts sharply with its natural appearance.    

Winner - People’s Choice Emma Hack Art Prize 2015
Che Chorley - ‘Minutes to…’

'Minutes to...' explores our dependance on the ocean for life and yet our wanton disregard for its health. It evokes a maternal instinctual care for the individual but ignorance of the whole.

Judges:  Samela Harris, Christopher Orchard and Emma Hack
