The installation ‘A Nature’ by Elisava students wins ex aequo the Llum BCN Award

09 Apr 2023

The installation A Nature, by the students of Elisava’s Master’s Degree in Ephemeral Architecture and Temporary Spaces and the Undergraduate Degree in Design, has won ex aequo, together with ETSAB’s Hogar, the Llum BCN 2022 award. The award, which the Barcelona Institute of Culture awarded this Sunday 6 February, highlights the best of the 16 lighting installations created by the city’s schools of art, design and lighting and architecture.

The multidisciplinary jury of Llum BCN valued the artistic and technical quality and the relationship with the space of the two winning installations, and praised the high level of the works that “have configured a marvellous park of light sculptures”. A Nature won, in the words of the jury, for its “precision, subtlety, sobriety, and for the dialogue generated between artifice and nature”.

Unlike in past editions, this year the jury did not make any special mention because “it was not possible, nor would it be fair to single out any one proposal above the others” and praised the high quality of all the installations that “have configured a marvellous park of light sculptures during these three winter nights”.

The jury was made up of Xevi Bayona, architect, creator and artistic director of the Lluèrnia de Olot festival; Alba G. Corral, visual artist, code developer and teacher; Maria Mauti, documentary film director and philosophy graduate; Max Milà, artist and designer; and Carme Ribas, architect and professor of architectural projects.
