The Armenian Sculptor Mikayel Ohanjanyan wins the 2014 Henraux Sculpture Prize


The Armenian Sculptor Mikayel Ohanjanyan has won the 2nd Edition of the Henraux Foundation Prize for sculpture in marble, with his “Physicality of the Invisible” sculpture, pictured above.

Philippe Daverio, noted Italian art critic presided over the Jury of the world’s only sculpture-in-marble prize; second-place winner was Francesca Pasquali, with “Frappa” and third-place winners were Filippo Ciavoli, and Massimiliano Pelletti, with “Corallo” and “Back to Basic” respectively.

The prize is reserved for young artists – “under 45″ – and is dedicated to the memory of Erminio Cidonio, who brought to Carrara famous modernists to work in marble in the 60s and 70s. This year’s finalists had their projects executed in marble from Monte Altissimo by the Foundation. We link to the English-language page on the Fondazione Henraux website, with details, here.
