Morgane Beyrend. Object: La Matriochka, 2017. Stone, Wood, Ceramic, Glass, Gold, Textile, Gold Leaf. from 1.5 x 3 cm to 16 x 24 cm. Photo by: Morgane Beyrend. Awarded at: Talente Competition 2019. Mixed Media Catalogue​.
. 
. La Matryoshka nesting dolls fit inside each other, symbolising the different layers of memory, from the crudest to the most delicate and fragile, representing the various types of fragmented identities of Alzheimer’s sufferers. The materials, from the central piece made of cut stone to the larger piece made of gold-plated fabric, have decreasing levels of hardness, texture and longevity. The shape fades in the same way, from the core, clearly identifiable as a figurine, to the egg-shaped outer piece.
. By exploring materials (stone, wood, ceramics, blown glass, fabric, gold-plated foil, and various techniques), this piece explores the different ways in which memory and identity alter as the disease progresses, through a symbolical prism, and the figure of the Russian doll.
. 
. Jury: Morgane Beyrend’s work deals with Alzheimer disease and age. The loss of control, which is inflicted by the disease, is reflected in the growing loss of definite forms. The motive of the Russian Matriochka symbolizes the reduction of the person. The increasing loss of control in shape and the graduation of materials relate to the fragility of age. The work might help the families of the patients to understand the illness better and also might serve as comfort.. Morgane Beyrend

Manami Aoki. Brooch: Hair of the Wood, 2017. Wood, silver stainless, steel.. 6 x 4.5 x 1.5 cm. Photo by: Manami Aoki. Awarded at: Talente Competition 2019. Talente catalogue.
. 
. In our general impression, wood is a hard material. However, I spent a lot of time on hammering and untying it. Through this experimental process, I discovered that each piece of woodblock is composed of their wood-fibers. 
. I also found that these wooden fibers look like humans hair.
. Hair, which is totally messed up and untidy when you wake up. 
. Therefore, I wanted to fix it tidy with a comb and make it looks impressive.
. 
. Jury: The brooches convinced by their sensibility and poetry, by respect for the material and the interest in proportion. They translate the act of combing hair in the material of cypress wood. The jury praised the haptic qualities and the illusionistic aspects of the work.. Manami Aoki

. Jury: Marion Delarue’s shoulder brooches with feathers convinced the jury by their strict order and their sophistication. They accentuate the shoulders and invite military associations.
