White Cube returns to ART021 with a solo presentation by Antony Gormley / 白立方回归ART021,呈现艺术家安东尼·葛姆雷个展


10 November - 13 November 2022

For ART021 Shanghai Contemporary Art Fair, White Cube is pleased to announce a solo presentation of works on paper by Antony Gormley. While internationally recognised as a sculptor, Gormley’s artistic journey has always involved drawing in many different forms, using organic substances such as casein, crude oil, blood, coffee, chicory, earth, shellac and varnish.

As the artist states:

‘For me, drawing is a form of thinking. But it is also about the medium: using the intrinsic qualities of substances and liquids, a kind of oracular process that requires tuning in to the behaviour of substances as much as to the behaviour of the unconscious, like reading images in tea leaves, trying to make a map of a path of feeling, a trajectory of thought.

It is important to me that the substances I use to draw with are not taken for granted; casein, crude oil, blood, coffee, chicory, earth, shellac and varnish all come with their own qualities, extracted from the body of the earth, from the body of plants or from living bodies.

Drawings have immediacy. In a good session, drawing can be like going for a rugged, physical adventure on a blustery day with changing conditions of light and rain. A day passed without drawing is a day lost.’

Concurrent to ART021, White Cube will also present a curated selection of work at West Bund, with various artists including Damien Hirst, Imi Knoebel, Julie Mehretu and Liu Wei.
