RADIM Labuda, a Slovak fine artist who works mostly with video, accepted the prestigious Jindřich Chalupecký Award at a ceremony in Brno on November 4, the Sme daily wrote.

“I’m truly taken aback,” Labuda said in response to the jury’s decision. “It means a lot to me.”
The jury praised the excellence and personal dimension of Labuda’s works, stating: “He uses the medium of video unexpectedly: sometimes poetically and sometimes in a harshly unconventional way. He interconnects themes from contemporary culture and art with his own stories.”

Labuda was selected for the Czech award, now in its 19th year, from among 62 artists, a record number for the competition.

The Chalupecký Award is given to artists under 35 years of age. The equivalent in Slovakia is the Oskár Čepan Award.
