TERRY KURGAN WINS (article first published : 2000-07-23)

The winner of the FNB Vita Art Prize 2000 is Terry Kurgan who received R30,000 for Lost and Found, an installation piece of family photographs on see-through silk-like material. This work is an extension of the exhibition Family Affairs held in the Mark Coetzee Fine Art Cabinet in Cape Town last year, for which she gained a nomination for the FNB Vita Art Prize.

Born in South Africa, Terry moved to the USA when she was 20 where she studied for a BA Fine Arts Degree at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland. Since her return to South Africa in 1988, she has lived and worked in Cape Town where she is also a lecturer in drawing and printmaking at the Michaelis School of Fine Art.

Other commissioned artists included Hentie van der Merwe from Johannesburg who was nominated for Babel Tower held in 1999 in the Civic Gallery, Johannesburg. A sculpture lecturer at the University of Pretoria, Claudette Schreuders was nominated for Liberated Voices Contemporary Art from South Africa at The Museum for African Art, New York and Unplugged at the Rembrandt Van Rijn Gallery in Johannesburg. The fourth commissioned artist is Cape Town based Berni Searle who was nominated for a series of photographic installations produced for an exhibition entitled Colour Me held at the Mark Coetzee Fine Art Cabinet in Cape Town.

The FNB Vita Art Prize 2000 Exhibition runs until September 2 and this year there will be an extensive education programme attached to the exhibition made possible by assistance from MTN, The French Institute and Business Arts South Africa. The selection panel for the FNB Vita Art Prize 2000 included Clive van den Berg, Willem Boshoff, Pat Mautlao, Julia Charlton and David Koloane.
