Hana Janeckova Wins GAM Award at Chelsea College of Art

On 6 September, Czech national Hana Janeckova was announced as the winner of the second annual GAM Gilbert de Botton Art Prize for new talent. The Chelsea College of Art and Design student was selected for her multi-media installation and was presented with the award at the opening of the College’s annual postgraduate show.

Hana, who is an MA Fine Art student, describes her prize-wining piece, The platform to build the tallest tower in the world, as dealing with the experience of ambiguous identity materialising in sculpture and installations that question a value, function and dislocation while gaining a delicate balance between a fragile vulnerability and robust autonomy.

Hana’s work will be on show at Chelsea’s postgraduate Summer Show. Taking place between 2 and 8 September, the annual show is a chance to spot the UK’s newest art stars and future greats.
