Three artists research by Stella

(1)Damien Hirst


(movement, 1965 - 1975)Postminimalism,

in the narrow sense, means the art by the generation next to minimalist artists, such as Eva Hesse and Richard Serra, who were representative artists at that time, and in the broad sense, it means "a series of art movements in the decade from 1965 to 1975," which indicates the coinstantaneous developments of the time, including process art, earthworks, conceptual art, performance, and installations. Postminimalism, as well as minimalism, seems to correspond to the turning point from modemism to postmodernism, and therefore, seems to be one of the important clues, when we consider the argument about art and sites, such as current installations and public art. Postminimalism refers specifically to artists whom utilise Minimalism either as an aesthetic or conceptual reference point from which to develop. The term does not refer to a particular movement but rather an artistic tendency. Post-minimalist artwork is often associated or confused with conceptual art; frequently a work or artist can be described as both, as it is this conceptual element which regularly distinguishes it from Minimalism

(2) Zou Cao鄒操

1975年於遼寧省出生,2001 年考入東北師範大學美術學院油畫系碩士研究生。

我們可以在HKIAAF 2008 找到這幅ZOU CAO的畫。它使我想起Andy Warhol。這幅畫反映了兩個極端:現代人的困惑:自我和社會。前者著眼於自我的成長和文化記憶,而後者則側重於矛盾和政治。 這個系列的作品側重於指紋的詮釋和象徵。作者用自己的指紋,而不是畫筆,留下了自己的個人特徵,他的繪畫象徵著力量,系統,身份,文化和歷史。



Maurizio Cattelan

Maurizio CattelanBest known for his facetious art productions, which are as surprising as they are unsettling, Maurizio Cattelan is the ultimate sideliner artist, poking holes in art, art history, monumentality, and nationalism. Take, for instance, Daddy Daddy (2008), the sculpture that Cattelan exhibited last winter at the Guggenheim in New York. A life-size, 3-D version of Disney’s Pinocchio floats face down in the museum’s rotunda pool and, in one gesture, seems to mock the forced optimism of the art world and the authoritative status of the museum

1960, Padua, Italy. Lives and works in New York and Milan.)Maurizio Cattelan has exhibited at Skulptur Projekte, Münster (1997), the Tate Gallery, London (1999), the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (2003) and the Museum Ludwig, Cologne (2003), and participated in the Venice Biennale (1993, 1997, 1999, and 2002). He was a finalist for the Guggenheim's Hugo Boss prize in 2000, received an honorary degree in Sociology from the University of Trento, Italy, in 2004, and was also awarded the Arnold-Bode prize from the Kunstverein Kassel, Germany, that same year.RECENT SOLO EXHIBITIONS/PROJECTS
