TONY CRAGG, 1981, waste wood
The sense of humour in the work of this assemblage artist draws our attention toward prefabricated everyday objects. He creates wall paintings out of plastic waste and makes objects out of glass, stone, wooden rubble, etc. Empiricism, which considers experience as the only source of knowledge, is the fundamental idea behind his choice of materials. In Every body’s Friday Night, he offers a critical view on the material excesses of the western world. Cragg arranges discarded objects, creating a new entity of synthetic puzzles.
