Concentrated: A Conversation with Johan Creten
by Michaël Amy
This conversation took place in March of 2010 at Johan Creten’s “Dark Continent” exhibition at Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin in Paris. Having made fundamental breakthroughs in the field of stoneware in terms of virtuosity, imagery, and scale, the Belgian artist, who refuses to sit still, is now displacing the boundaries of what is possible and acceptable in bronze sculpture. Steeped in the old masters and literature, Creten achieves mythical resonance in his treatment of nature, from energies to elements, from plant life to human life, and increasingly wild animals.

The Collectors, 2008–09. Glazed stoneware, 3 elements, 200 x 60 x 85 cm. each.
