    Tercerunquinto

    Mexico City, México, b. 1996
    Founded in Monterrey, Mexico, in 1996, Tercerunquinto is a collective project of Mexican artists Gabriel Cázares and Rolando Flores. The group has worked on projects intervening in both public and private spaces, questioning the limits between both spheres, breaking down the elements these systems are composed of, and dismantling the logical order of their interrelations. As a collective, they try to challenge the borders that are systematised around the constitution and organisation of any system, whether it is architectonic or urban, examining their implications and effects in personal, social, cultural or political domains.

  • Gardar Eide Einarsson

    Gardar Eide Einarsson

    Oslo, Norge / Works and lives in Tokyo, Japan, b. 1976
    Gardar Eide Einarsson works with the notion of sub cultures and how to access these environments. He addresses this subject matter through diverse media as installation’s, paintings, sculptures etc. The notion of subversion and the undermining of the establishment is present, yet without being an aspiration of the artist, this obviously points to the classical notion of the artist’s position in society. All his works relate to the anti institutional and to the interference of concepts of freedom and the structures and organizations in society. The artist makes apparent the communicative strategies of inclusion and exclusion dominant in the culture we live in and the parallel systems existing on the boarder of the wellknown society. With a view on the institutions of society, Einarsson explores how they are negotiated and how ways are found to escape them and work with different degrees of belonging and non-belonging.

  • Anthony Caro

    Anthony Caro

    New Malden, Reino Unido, b. 1924
    Anthony Caro (born 1924) has played a pivotal role in the development of twentieth century sculpture. After studying sculpture at the Royal Academy Schools in London, he worked as assistant to Henry Moore. He came to public attention with a show at the Whitechapel Gallery in 1963, where he exhibited large abstract sculptures brightly painted and standing directly on the ground so that they engage the spectator on a one-to-one basis. This was a radical departure from the way sculpture had hitherto been seen and paved the way for future developments in three-dimensional art. Caro’s teaching at St Martin’s School of Art in London (1953-1981) was very influential. His questioning approach opened up new possibilities, both formally and with regard to subject matter. His innovative work as well as his teaching led to a flowering and a new confidence in sculpture worldwide. Caro often works in steel, but also in a diverse range of other materials, including bronze, silver, lead, stoneware, wood and paper. Major exhibitions include retrospectives at the Museum of Modern Art, New York (1975), the Trajan Markets, Rome (1992), the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo (1995), Tate Britain, London (2005), and three museums in Pas-de-Calais, France (2008), to accompany the opening of his Chapel of Light at Bourbourg. He has been awarded many prizes, including the Praemium Imperiale for Sculpture in Tokyo in 1992 and the Lifetime Achievement Award for Sculpture in 1997. He holds many honorary degrees from universities in the UK, USA and Europe. He was knighted in 1987 and received the Order of Merit in May 2000.

    Copenhagen, Dänemark, b. 1993
    Art group SUPERFLEX was founded in 1993 by Danish artists Jakob Fenger, Rasmus Nielsen and Bjørnstjerne Christiansen. Renowned for their playful, subversive analysis of our economic and social structures, their oeuvre consists of large-scale installations, films and long-term, process-based projects, all of which are known as ‘tools’. Seeing their work as something to be actively put to use, the tools are designed to affect or influence their social and economic context, often inviting participation from the visitor. Superflex’s work continues to confront issues of copyright, intellectual property and trademark infringement.
