BADA announces the winner of the inaugural BADA Art Prize

Antiques News & Fairs - BADA announces the winner of the inaugural BADA Art Prize

The British Antique Dealers’ Association awarded their inaugural BADA Art Prize to Katie Surridge for her piece, Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?, a polystyrene fast food box cast in bronze. In her own words Surridge says, “In this work, the iconic clamshell polystyrene fast food box becomes immortalised and is cast in bronze. Not only this but when I found the original item on the beach in Margate, it had been ‘sculpted’ by hungry seagulls desperate to get the left-over chips it once housed. So, for the BADA art prize I would like people to try and imagine a future where plastic will have been banned and more sustainable materials are used. The longevity of bronze ensures this objects survival, making it the perfect material for an object that one day may become an antique.”

Finalists for the award also included Lynn Dennison with Ruin and Yusun Won with From Emptiness: A vessel inspired by Moon jar.

The BADA Art Prize hopes to promote works which exemplify “the antiques of tomorrow” and the wining piece was chosen for its engagement with the enduring ingenuity and quality of BADA members’ objects. All three pieces were on display on the BADA stand at Firsts: London’s Rare Book Fair held at the Saatchi Gallery.
