29 November 2010 | Kath Fries has won the Japan Foundation New Artist Award for her exhibition Grove, which was presented at the Japan Foundation’s gallery in Sydney in September 2010.

Her exhibition was inspired by the centuries-old Japanese fable,
The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter. Following the concept, the Japan Foundation Gallery was transformed into an bamboo forest.

Fries was selected fro a field of three finalist entries by head judge John McDonald.

She receives a return flight to Tokyo.
