FPT for Sustainable Art 2nd edition
Lennhart Lahuis (born in 1986 in the Netherlands) is the winner of the second edition of the FPT for Sustainable Art Award, a project organized by FPT Industrial in partnership with Artissima 2021, with the aim of promoting sustainability issues that are also expressed in contemporary art..
The artist, put forward by the gallery Dürst Britt & Mayhew, received the award for his artwork WHEN IS IT THAT WE FEEL THE CHANGE IN THE AIR? from an international jury composed of Diana Campbell Betancourt, artistic director, Samdani Art Foundation, Dhaka; Krist Gruijthuijsen, director, KW Berlin Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin; and Antje-Britt Mählmann, director, Kunsthalle St. Annen, Lübeck.
The award – last year given to Renato Leotta for his artwork MARE – is the fruit of reflections dear to FPT Industrial which, through this project, is consolidating its continuous commitment to environmental protection. The FPT for Sustainable Art award was conceived together with Artissima with the aim of FPT Industrial conveying the company's commitment, even in a context apparently far removed from the industrial one, and reaching an audience that is becoming increasingly attentive to these issues.
