A total of 77 300 people, who visited Amos Rex’s first summer exhibition, had the opportunity to vote for their favourite work by using glass marbles on a humouristic marble track. Petri Ala-Maunus’ works attracted the largest number of votes from the audience.
“I’m really happy that the public has liked my work. It is a huge recognition to be chosen as the visitors’ choice from amongst a group of such great artists. I’m particularly delighted that it was awarded to paintings, when the death of painting has long been discussed in connection to contemporary art,” Ala-Maunus comments.
