Dear Friends and Colleagues, We are excited to announce Tosca Teran as one of the winners of the BigCi Environmental Award 2019.

Here is what the judges said about Tosca’s proposal:

Tosca’s practice is impressively scientific, she is obviously passionate about her subject matter. The jury was inspired by how she integrates boundaries between scientific concepts into her artistic research methods through different media, from living sculptures to biodata recordings. We think there is a huge potential for her practice to relate to the local environment, and she will gain new insights into the Australian natural environment. She is going to share these outcomes of thinking about and living alongside other planetary organisms with BigCi visitors.

Tosca receives a fully paid residency, accommodations, a stipend and percentage of her flight will be covered by the award.
