Pictorial Spaces of the Cosmos, Ritual and Speculation

Isabel Nuño de Buen (born 1985 in Mexico City) has been awarded the SPRENGEL PRIZE 2021. The prize is awarded by the Niedersächsische Sparkassenstiftung and the state of Lower Saxony to visual artists from Lower Saxony and aims to provide an impetus for cultural exchange across Europe. It is accompanied by a catalog and an exhibition at the Sprengel Museum Hannover. The prize also includes a six-month travel grant to other European countries. Isabel Nuño de Buen’s idiosyncratic position as a sculptor who combines different cultures, media and techniques in subtle, sign-like and sculptural interventions convinced the prize jury, as did her recent presentation in the large space at the Kunstverein Hannover. Her journey took her through Spain and France where she viewed historic tapestries and honed her work in direct examination of these impressive works. Isabel Nuño de Buen graduated in 2014 from the HBK Braunschweig in the class of Bogomir Ecker, in 2016 she received the prize of the Kunstverein Hannover, and in 2015 she was granted the annual scholarship of the state of Lower Saxony. Most recently, she has had solo exhibitions at Kunstverein Hannover and at The 500 Capp Street Foundation in San Francisco.
