Anthony Key

Born, 1949 in South Africa

Anthony Key is one of the most interesting sculptors practising in Britain today. His work playfully explores the many and varied ways in which Britain has created, perceived, and continues to perceive historical and contemporary ‘Chinese’ identities. His work is frequently poignant, always original and consistently daring in ways in which it unpicks and unpacks the racism and the absurdities of our ‘Chinese’ stereotypes. Yet there is much more to Key’s work than this. It is, in its own decidedly modern way, celebratory of the mixed-upness which is 21st Century Britain, in particular, and the world in general.”
