The winner of Turku Biennial 2013 is Danish Heidi Hove (b. 1976). The winner was chosen by the director of Stockholm's Nationalmuseum, Mr Berndt Arell. Heidi Hove will be rewarded with a prize of 5000 euros and the Turku Biennial medal by Aboa Vetus & Ars Nova museum.
Heidi Hove was originally invited to take part in the exhibition by artist and curator Ellen Friis.
Hove studies in her art the lives of ordinary people and the human relationship with public and private spaces. It is characteristic for her to acquaint herself with the exhibition locations of her art and to build her art works based on her observations from these locations. With her subtle installations and interventions, Hove changes the meanings of different spaces and presents alternative ways of seeing our everyday immediate surroundings.
