1st prize: "Lost Horizon" by Kirsten Sauer, kisa. (Germany)
She has stretched gift ribbons in landscape colours on a large scale, creating an installation that is visual and audible. The viewer can look through to the horizon, and the colourfulness of the taut ribbons sensitively refers to the surrounding landscape. The fascinating thing about this landscape representation is the unusual combination and materiality - despite all its simplicity, the viewer can hardly escape the effect.
