Jameel Prize 3 opens at the V&A

Concrete Carpet. Artist: Nada Debs

DHA were delighted to continue their relationship with the V&A Design Dept with this exciting exhibition of contemporary art. The Jameel Prize showcases 10 artists work (drawn from 270 entries), with materials ranging from concrete to fabric to spices. The lighting had to bring out the best in the individual works whilst making the space work as whole.

Two vastly different ‘carpets’ dominate the floor space of the gallery: one in concrete by Nada Debs which shows beautiful engraved lettering, and one that recreates floor tiles but made entirely of spices by Laurent Mareschal. The winning entry was Dice Kayek for three garments called Istanbul Contrast.

More information on their winning entry and all of the shortlisted artists can be found on the V&A website here
