Third Prize: “Vasilisa” by Ulrike-Martha Zimmermann
Ulrike-Martha Zimmermann represented the theme of transparency through a sculpture of Vasilisa — the goddess of clarity, transparency and resulting inner and outer beauty. Vasilisa does not conceal anything. Colourful yarn grows from her eyes like extensions of her sight. The goddess’ eyes are closed because transparency also operates inwards. Everything she sees inside is transported to the outside in a continuous flow of energy.
