Greek Australian, Jasmin Pilatos, wins the TWT Excellence Prize


Keep the name Jasmin Pilatos on your radar as one to watch, after the University of New South Wales Art & Design student was awarded the TWT Excellence Prize at the A&D ANNUAL exhibition. 

The A&D ANNUAL exhibition is the largest national showcase of graduate contemporary art and design, featuring more than 150 works across a range of disciplines including animation, film and sculpture.

Pilatos, who is a Bachelor of Media Arts (Honours) student at UNSW, was awarded the TWT Excellence Prize during the exhibition for her work Entasis.

“I feel really grateful given this year has been unpredictable and especially to have had support from family, friends, my tutor and fellow cohort,” Pilatos tells The Greek Herald.

Entasis (2020), Jasmin Pilatos.

Entasis is a moving image work which explores the relationship between natural light, illusion and architecture within everyday life.

Employing an abstract approach to film-making, the work is meditative and reflective, with a focus on interior spaces that resonates powerfully with the circumstances of 2020.

“The work is restricted to using only natural light to light through the scenes to explore the interactions of those themes,” Pilatos told local university media.

“The ultimate goal is to encourage the audience to re-evaluate the way they navigate the private and public spaces they share in the world.”

The winning work was selected by the 2020 judging panel comprised of UNSW Art & Design academic staff, esteemed artists and practitioners in the field led by Deputy Head of School (Design), Dr Mark Ian Jones, and Deputy Head of School (Art), Dr Grant Stevens.

As part of the TRT Excellence Prize, which has been generously supported since 2017 by the Bridging Hope Charity Foundation and TWT Property Group, Pilatos receives a $3000 bursary and studio at St Leonards Creative Precinct for a year.

Pilatos’ work, along with over 80 other projects from graduating creatives, is available to view at UNSW Galleries until 17 December 2020 and in the ANNUAL online gallery here.
