Bonniers Konsthall is proud to present Mathilde Walker-Billaud, the winner of BKH Curator Award 2019. Her exhibition will open at Bonniers Konsthall on May 6, 2020.

Mathilde Walker-Billaud, originally from France, is now based in New York, where she recently graduated from the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College, and hosts an interdisciplinary series about spectatorship "What You Get Is What You See". Her exhibition proposal—The World Is Gone, I Must Carry You—features artists that work with recording, transcribing and reviving minority languages outside academic and colonial contexts. The other three finalists were Eliel Jones, Liudmila Kirsanova and Sophie Rose. 
The jury included Elena Filipovic, Omar Kholeif and Magnus af Petersens.

From the jury’s statement: 
"The jury felt that Mathilde Walker-Billaud’s proposal laid out an exhibition that promises to be visually compelling, thoroughly researched, and to respond to some of the key urgencies of our time. Specifically, the nature in which technologies reveal and conceal themselves, as well as the mechanisms by which art is able to represent a future possible reality. And this through a close examination of the politics of language and how the extinction of languages are a larger metaphor for loss, cultural effacement, and dealing with otherness. Walker-Billaud brings into conversation artists from across generations, here the iconic figures of our time are newly put into conversation with emerging voices who are shaping the canon of visuality for tomorrow."
