A renowned British sculptor and the 1988 Turner Prize winner, Tony Cragg plays a leading role in the remarkable generation of sculptors that emerged in the late Seventies and he serves currently as the director of the respected Kunstakademie, Düsseldorf. His first museum show in China has just opened last Friday at the art museum of the Central Academy of Fine Arts.
The afternoon we met Tony Cragg in the third floor gallery at the art museum of the Central Academy of Fine Arts to talk about his new show, he was pretty occupied with his preparations for this exhibition. He would not regard it as a retrospective exhibition to summarize his career since he is endowed with boundless energy to create new works. This major exhibition, part of the event UKNOW, offers the first full survey of Cragg’s work in China, which also has been exhibited in Scotland, Venice, Duisburg, Paris and Dallas. Featuring nearly 50 major sculptures, the show is focused on work from the past 15 years, with some earlier pieces.

英国艺术家,以雕塑作品著名。1949年生于利物浦一个工程师的家庭,年轻时曾是生物化学实验室的技术员,发觉自己对艺术更感兴趣后,弃工从艺。先后在温布尔顿美术学院及皇家美术学院深造,逐渐成为艺术界的中坚人物。
克拉格的创作敏感于材质,作品常使用现成品、废弃物及工业社会制品。他曾于1988年获得特纳奖,在世界各个重要美术馆举办过个展或联展。现任德国杜塞尔多夫艺术学院院长。
1969年我毕业后,就开始在实验室进行生物化学方面的工作。那个实验室的味道真的很难闻,待了很短一段时间后,我对科学研究的幻想很快消失了。为了消磨时间,我就开始学习绘画。当绘画变得比实验室的工作更重要时,我觉得我的生活应该向前走了。于是我离开了这个实验室,报名去上了艺术学院。在那里我发现了我想要发现的东西,想要学的东西。
