Delia Jürgens, this year’s Sprengel prize-winner, is an artist who processes the flood of virtual images and data from the Internet in her sculptures and installations, thus uncovering the hybrid layers of digital and physical realities. To do so she draws on all materials and media, ranging from stone, metal and paper to media images, and on processes such as photography, scanning and image processing software.
From the jury’s reasons for its decision: “Her indoor and outdoor installations are distinguished by their complex constellations, with constant superimpositions and stratifications that pervade spaces. In her work the artist attempts to lend appropriate forms of expression to the ambivalences of our exterior world.”
Delia Jürgens studied, among other things, scenography under Prof. Colin Walker and Prof. Silke Buhr (2008-2011) and visual arts at Braunschweig University of Art (HBK) (2008-2013). She lives and works in Hannover, Berlin and Los Angeles.
