The winner of the Artists’ Trust award 2016 is Seeun Kim. The Valerie Beston Artists’ Trust was established in 2006 after the death of Valerie Beston, a former director of Marlborough Fine Art. The charity supports artists at the beginning of their careers and partners with the Royal College of Art to award an annual prize to a postgraduate student selected from the degree show, this includes a studio at SPACE for 12 months and a solo show at Marlborough Fine Art.
Seeun’s fascination with empty spaces and in-between places came from personal experiences of where she grew up. It is now connected with the desire to stare at a tremor of leftover spaces, from fundamental city structures like roads, bridges, and tunnels. Seeun is based at Brickfield Studios.
