'Tony Cragg, Sculpture: Body and Soul' at the Albertina Museum, Vienna
7 July 2022
In this presentation, open from 7 July – 6 November, the Albertina Museum turns a spotlight on the oeuvre of Tony Cragg for the first time with a selection of 40 sculptures and drawings.
The development of Cragg’s sculptural output over time reveals a progressive shift from figurative to abstracted forms, while his inclusion of unconventional materials such as fiberglass and Kevlar alongside wood, stone, and stainless steel renders the perceptibility of his sculptures’ presence within a given space highly variable.
The 1990s saw Cragg begin paying increased attention to the production of drawings, manifested both as sketches for proposed sculptures and as expressions of his thoughts on formal and substantive questions. Here, the artist is fond of working in series in which he deals thoroughly with his various representational and abstract motifs.
