The Beckers Art Award 2001, of 150.000 Swedish crowns, have been given to Christian Partos.

Christian Partos is born in 1958 and has been trained at Konstfack’s sculpture program in Stockholm. Christian Partos is an artist who doesn’t shy away from big feelings, from heartache and pain. Partos objects and installations are often grand, inconceivably technical and theatrical, but they always display a poetic, not to say sacred, quality of restraint.

As few others the loner Christian Partos has an ability to offer glimpses of an astounding world, and he is given Beckers’s scholarship for his way of seemingly without difficulties, in ingenious constructions, transcending both the physical room and the concept of habit.
