BASEL.- Pilar Corrias congratulates John Skoog as the winner of the Baloise Art Prize at this year’s Art Basel: Statements (19 – 22 June 2014).

Skoog’s new installation, Pilar Corrias' first booth presentation at Art Basel, comprises the video Reduit (Redoubt) (2014), an archival found image, and three photographs.

The Baloise Art Prize is presented annually at the Statements sector of Art Basel to two artists selected by a renowned jury. Skoog is the sole recipient of this year's Prize. The 2014 jury is made up of: Karola Kraus (Director, Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig, Vienna); Susanne Gaensheimer (Director, MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt); Dirk Snauwaert, (Artistic director, WIELS, Contemporary Art Centre, Brussels); and Martin Schwander (Fine Art Advisor of the Baloise, Chairman of the jury). For the jury, Skoog's film bears witness to the Cold War on the borderline between personal and collective history.

In addition to the prize of CHF 30,000, the Baloise Group will acquire a group of works by Skoog that will be donated to two key European museums, currently the Hamburger Kunsthalle and the Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig, Vienna.
