Tony Cragg, mixed media, 1985
British artist Tony Cragg, naturalized as German, has spent his entire career exploring the boundaries of traditional sculpture. He collected all kinds of found objects and explores the connection between humans and the material world. Often these are political or social approaches. Cragg also pays attention to the relationship between humans and natural forms and focuses on the emotional experience. On the one hand there are the existing objects that are reworked into new forms, on the other hand there are the sculptures based on the complex constructions of natural organisms.
In ‘Tubes’ Tony Cragg arranges industrial objects and a synthetic puzzle is created as the new whole. Sewer pipes, like a winding intestinal system, connect objects of human utensils. An aesthetic design of what would otherwise never be experienced in this way.
