Irina Gabiani won the Top Judges`s Prize at the Festival of Experimental Films -Letters from the sky

Irina Gabiani won one of the Top prize Judges`s Choise at the Festival of Experimental Films “Letters from the sky” 2011, South Africa
With her video “Take off your veil” .

In this performance the artist appeals to each of us to free ourselves from our limited vision and get rid of our own ‘veil’, in order to see the world directly. 

“The collective statement of these artists persuades us to cherish the world we live in, not only for ourselves – the seven billion – but also for generations yet to be born.  In an art world often ruled by and motivated by money, every video artist whose effort is featured here stands up to be counted as a global citizen.”  Competition judge Jan Kather (curator, artist and educator, Elmira College & Cornell University, New York, USA)

The other judges were Kisito Assangni, a Togolese curator who divides his time between London and Paris, and Kai Lossgott, LETTERS FROM THE SKY curator and artist, based in Cape Town.
