Catherine Anyango Grünewald wins 2nd edition of The Navigator Art on Paper Prize

29 May 2019

The jury's motivation:
"One of the core themes in Catherine Anyango Grünewald’s work is public space and its sensitivity to traumatic events, alongside its value as symbol of the systemic, historical and economic oppression of the marginalized. The artist chooses to work mostly with charcoal on paper given the democratic nature of this widely used tool, particularly in non-artistic contexts. Through her drawings, Anyango Grünewald tries to rewrite stories and events in order to expose the invisible structures of power and violence."

Catherine Anyango Grünewald, Senior Lecturer at Konstfack, has studied at Central Saint Martins and the Royal College of Art, both in London, and completed an MA in modern literature at UCL, London.
