The Evens Arts Prize, awarded every two years to a European artist, supports artistic initiatives that help us rethink contemporary European realities and envision new perspectives for shaping our common world.
Visual artist and filmmaker Els Dietvorst (°1964) graduated from Sint-Lukas Brussels University College of Art and Design with a master’s degree in Fine Arts. The focus of her work is communication, inter-human relations and social conflict. It deals with anti-utopian themes like the human condition and the outsider. Her work often takes the form of long-term projects in which she works directly with her surroundings and those living there.
“The Rabbit And the Teasel” is the first film of a triptych on human survival. Els Dietvorst is currently working on the second part, which tells the story of an Irish fishers community that suffers from European maritime agreements.
