ANTONY GORMLEY AWARDED THE 2013

PRAEMIUM IMPERIALE IN SCULPTURE

 

Our warmest congratulations to Antony Gormley, who this week was awarded the Praemium Imperiale in sculpture, one of the most prestigous International art awards.

The prize was founded by the Japan Art Association in 1988 and has since been handed out 25 times in its five categories: Painting, Sculpture, Architecture, Music and Theatre/Film. The artists are recognized and awarded "for their achievements, for the impact they have had internationally on the arts, and for their role in enriching the global community". This year the other laureates are Michelangelo Pistoletto, Painting, David Chipperfield, Architecture, Plácido Domingo, Music and Francis Ford Coppola, Theatre/Film.

Antony Gormley was born in 1950 and is today one of the most acclaimed British artists worldwide. The four elemental forces which rule Antony Gormley’s artistic philosophy are Body, Mass, Balance and Movement, and it is the combinations of these factors that constitute the unique level of harmonious gravitation constantly communicated by his sculptures and installation work.

Galleri Andersson/Sandström has cooperated with Gormley for over ten years and will host a solo exhibition in the Stockholm gallery in August 2014.
