And the Winner Is...

City Acrobat
by Yeni Kim (South Korea, UK)

Yeni Kim is originally from Seoul, South Korea, and is currently studying Visual Communication at the Royal College of Art in London. She works with various media, such as illustration, animation, and printed communication, but her main interest is in the art of storytelling. Yeni Kim loves to incorporate interesting stories from all aspects of life, using these stories as themes for her work, then adding her own insights and emotions.

’City Acrobat’, a narrative pop up book, is about life in the big city. The main character, an isolated female acrobat, represents the self portrait of a citizen. She needs to perform on the high wire all day, like the workers laboring in the city. Infinite roads, crowded buses, and skyscrapers illustrate the routine life of the busy citizen. Like the female acrobat’s dream, the city we belong to might not be the real world, but a kind of stage that we need to perform on.

The Jury appreciated the extraordinary combination of the visual quality, maturity of the presentation, originality with the poetic and at the same time very profound content of the artwork.
