FURNITURE designer Michal Moravčík won the 9th annual Oskár Čepan Prize, a competition organised by the Centre of Contemporary Art Foundation.
Moravčík's furniture objects, which feature political and existential issues through various carved slogans, are exhibited at the Pálffy Palace along with works by three other finalists of the competition - Tomáš Agat Blonski (modern photography), Jaroslav Kyša (performance art, installation), and Peter Maukš Voda (contemporary painting).
The winner received Sk20,000 (€500), a six-week stay in New York, and the possibility to hold an individual exhibition organised upon the artist's return.
The Oskár Čepan Prize is awarded to Slovak artists 35 years of age or younger.
