Lausanne, June 28 2015
The Musée de l’Elysée and Parmigiani Fleurier are thrilled to announce Slovak artist Martin Kollar is the winner of the first edition of the Prix Elysée.
"In Provisional Arrangement Martin Kollar reveals a deeply ironic, yet delicate eye through images combining both a sense of rigor, and surrealism. The series transcends the specific historical and, geographical constraints to become a reflection on the human, condition, its inherent transiency and its search for meaning."
