  • 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.

  • Sara Chang Yan

    Sara Chang Yan

    Lisbon, Portugal, b. 1982

    Sara Chang Yan (Lisbon, Portugal, 1982) lives and works in Lisbon. Her artistic practice is focused on drawing and investigates the spatial potentialities of the sheet of paper, not treated as a two-dimensional surface but as a field that actively responds to her interventions and gestures. Dots, lines, geometrical shapes and clusters of signs, traced by pencil or watercolour, are the transcription of an intimate vision that becomes concrete on the paper support, which is also marked by holes, cuts, and by the removal of thin layers of paper itself. Through this interplay of solids and voids, the artist underlines the lightness and fragility of the material and at the same time, instead of merely considering it as the plane of representation, the sheet is charged with a new sculptural force.

    Recent exibitions include: ‘Escuto o Silencîo, Fala interiro e com Precisão’, Madragoa (2016); ‘Álibi’, EspaçoAZ, Lisbon (2015); ‘Getting Lost’, Fundación Botín, Villa Iris, Santander (2015); ‘Phonambient Sound Maps’, Sonoscopia, Casa da Música, Porto (2015). In 2015 she was awarded with the Prémio Artes Visuais para Jovens Criadores, Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian. In 2016 she participated in Open Sessions 7: Hibernating Plan at the Drawing Center in New York.
