Sabīne Šnē

Helen Scott Lidgett Award

Sabīne Šnē constructs visual stories in order to explore the intersections between culture and nature, informed by historical and current ideas. Through her work, Sabīne reflects on human habits, desires, traces of actions and their impact on the environment.

Sabīne was selected for the 2022/23 Helen Scott Lidgett Award by a panel including Zane Čulkstena, founder of Kim Contemporary Art Centre from a shortlist of six MFA graduate artists at Art Academy of Latvia.

Helen Scott Lidgett Award

The Helen Scott Lidgett Award is a partnership between Acme, Central Saint Martins (University of the Arts London), Art Academy of Latvia and the family of Helen Scott Lidgett. Aiming to provide a bridge between art school and professional practice, the award includes a generous bursary, rent-free studio space and a mentoring programme. Recipients of Acme’s Early Career Awards Programme work from shared studios in order to encourage an environment of peer support and critical dialogue.
