|14 November 2011 | Bianca Hester is the winner of the $60,000 Melbourne Prize for Urban Sculpture. She was selected for a work called A world, fully accessible by no living being.|
The prize, which is open to Victorian sculptors, was judged by a panel including Max Delany, director of the Monash Museum of Art, and Juliana Engberg, artistic director of the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art.
In a joint statement the panel said Hester’s work produced “something unexpected within the phenomenological texture of the city, a resonant and vivacious harnessing of the latent energies in the public realm”.
The finalist exhibition remains on show at Federation Square in Melbourne until 21 November.
