The winner of From Dusk Till Dawn Art Prize: “Ill”
Ill is an audiovisual and anti-fascist noise project started in 2013 in Oslo. While desperately seeking to balance real-time graphics with analog and digital audio, Ill simultaneously aims to challenge the perception of their own bodies and their submission to structures of authority (material, social, spiritual).

About the prize:
From Dusk Till Dawn Art Prize aims to recompense each year one particularly meriting art work presented during the Winter Solstice night exhibition. We aim to support and encourage experimental and time-based practices that take the challenge to keep us awake and focused till sunrise, stretching the darkness of the longest night of the year into a state of dream, utopia and poetry.
From Dusk Till Dawn Art Prize consists of a symbolic amount of money and the original cassette tape recording of the Winter Solstice 2015.
The prize is not meant to judge about the « best » art work or performance, neither comparing artists in between each-other, but rather encouraging a new artistic initiative.
