packer's prize

And the winner of this year's Packer's Prize is Adelina Holil for her work titled Monkey bars 2017.

Adelina commented on her work, "The purpose of Monkey bars is to reveal the dark secrets of child exploitation behind the production of our clothing. I have constructed a paradox of the exploited children in playful poses on a clothes rack depicting what they should be doing: playing. The clothing designs, depicting chains, ropes and graffiti, symbolise how these children are forced to be slaves and the torture they endure. The placement of the hangers emulate monkey bars; a typical childhood memory they may never have."
