Anna Chromy & Conscience Art
Anna Chromy’s prolific career has seen over 50 permanent global installations, and global awards, exhibitions and accolades.
Her sculptures celebrate the moral stories of mankind, the ones from which our understanding of values are born. Her art can therefore be considered Sustainable or Conscience Art.
Anna’s creations will journey from their home in Tuscany to China’s capital, bringing east and west together on a scale only her bronze and marble masterpieces can.
This Conscience Art will become the platform where Europe and China come together to celebrate the beauty of creation, whilst developing sustainable and harmonious values.
A few of Anna’s many International Awards and Accolades are as follows:
2008 “Premio Michelangelo”
2005 Exhibition”Mythos Europe”on Place Vendome, Paris
2003 “Medal Franz Kafka” , Prague
1999 Installation of a “Coat of Life”, or “Piétà” Salzburg Cathedral
1995 Installation “France Triomphante” and “Leporello”, France
2000 “The Sound of Bronze”, Prague,
2004 “Il Canto di Orpheo”, Pietrasanta
2005″Le Mythe D’Europe” Place Vendome, Paris
Anna’s masterpiece the ‘Cloak of Conscience‘ is a sculpture made from a single 5 meter high 250 ton block of Carrera marble, the largest ever cut.
It is our conscience which enables us to see the joy and beauty in life. The hollow interior means you are able to walk inside the sculpture – thus enjoying the calm and protection it offers.

After a four year, $380 million refurbishment, the National Museum of China finally opened its doors to the public as the largest exhibition space on the planet, bigger than both the Louvre in Paris and the Hermitage in St. Petersburg.
An integrated national museum under the Ministry of Culture of China, draws equally from both history and art and is dedicated to its collections, exhibitions, research, archaeology, public education and cultural communication.
The museum has become Chinas most prestigious event location, with many luxury brands being lucky enough to have access to the space over the past year.
The Entrance Hall will show all 16 monumental sculptures in eight groups. These are the same sculptures which were on display all around the Old Port of St. Tropez in the summer of 2011.
It will also have a projection space showing a 3D movie on The Cloak of Conscience and other videos. Here it will also be possible to show a presentation by the title sponsor of the event.
