bio 

An intensely versatile artist whose works employ a wide range of media, including painting, sculpture, installation and performance, Gao Weigang evades categorization of his artworks into a particular genre. His language makes each piece both the apparatus and the product of experiment, transforming objects so they break through the audience’s natural and ideological perceptions of the material world. Gao’s creations are also personal: they are milestones in the artist’s quest of self-reflection and a constant re-examination of himself. Despite the many artistic forms and materials Gao Weigang adopts and the great aesthetic variations throughout his works, they all reflect his intention to challenge the viewer’s accustomed visual culture with a sense of humor and an overriding hint of skepticism. Whether it is painting, sculpture or installation, the artist manages to retain a strong sense of medium-specificity, prompting questions to the audiences to rethink about how accurate their common knowledge and perception is.

Born in Heilongjiang Province, China in 1976, Gao Weigang graduated from the Tianjing Academy of Fine Arts, majored in Oil painting. He currently lives and works in Beijing. Widely exhibiting across the Mainland China as well as in Hong Kong, Singapore, London, and New York City. His works have been collected by many art institutions and foundations with worldwide reputation such as The Burger Collection in Switzerland, The DSL Collection in Paris, France; Long Museum in Shanghai, China; White Rabbit Collection in Sydney, Australia; Yuz Museum in Jakarta, Indonesia; and Louis Vuitton Group in Hong Kong, etc. Gao Weigang was awarded winner of “Art Futures” in Art HK 2011 in recognition of his artistry and the originality of his work.

简介

高伟刚在作品上采用多样媒体,包括绘画、雕塑、装置和表演艺术,却拒绝将他的作品归为某种特定的类型。他的艺术语言使每个作品既是一个实验的设备,也是成果,让观众对自然物质世界的思想和观念有所突破。高伟刚的创作极具丰富的个人色彩,其作品皆是他在艺术追求中个人的自我反省和不断重新审视自己的里程碑。尽管他的作品在艺术形式和材料采用上有极大的审美变化,但在挑战观众的视觉文化习惯上,无论是通过绘画、雕塑还是装置艺术,他仍然坚定地保留着该媒介本身强烈的特性,并将幽默诙谐的手法和怀疑的态度贯彻其中,从而使观众去反思他们所熟知的常识。

高伟刚1976年生于黑龙江省,毕业于天津美术学院油画系,目前生活、工作在北京。艺术家在中国大陆、香港、新加坡、伦敦、纽约等地举办过多次展览,作品被诸多享有国际声誉的艺术机构及基金会收藏,包括瑞士的博格收藏基金,法国巴黎的DSL收藏基金,中国上海的龙美术馆,澳大利亚悉尼的白兔基金,印尼雅加达的余德耀美术馆,及香港路易威登集团等等。因为其作品的艺术性和创新性,他在2011年荣获香港艺术博览会“艺术之未来”大奖。
