The Blue Rider


After his spectacular appearance in the British Pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2003 as well as the recently opened installation acquired by the Tate Gallery, The Upper Room, we are very pleased to announce our second exhibition of works by the British artist Chris Ofili (*1968).

With this exhibition, Chris Ofili makes his debut as a sculptor. A couple, whose portrayal is reminiscent of the Catalonian tradition of caganer, takes on the leading role. Its patina provides the chromatic design for the entire exhibition. Chris Ofili restricts himself to the colours blue and silver in all the works presented.

Chris Ofili, who was awarded the Turner Prize in 1997, lives in London and Trinidad.

An extensive catalogue will be published simultaneously with the exhibition.
