“Paris-based artist’s work recreates flower arrangements that featured at diplomatic events connected to independence ceremonies in African countries.

The 20th edition of the Prix Marcel Duchamp was awarded to Kapwani Kiwanga yesterday evening at the Centre Pompidou in Paris for her installation, Flowers for Africa. Kiwanga pipped Alice Anderson, Hicham Berrada and Enrique Ramírez to the €35,000 prize that was founded by the ADIAF (Association for the International Dissemination of French Art).

Featuring 13 floral arrangements on white podiums, Kiwanga’s work is based on archived imagery of flowers at key diplomatic events connected to the independence of African countries.”
