Les Extatiques 2021 Featuring Tony Cragg

24 June—3 October 2021
La Défense, Paris

For this 4th edition of the Extatiques, nine artists take over the esplanade of Paris La Défense, from the Takis basin to the Agam Fountain, to enable you to discover the district in a new light.

At La Défense, Paris, Tony Cragg installs his work Senders. The verticality of this columnar sculpture evokes Constantin Brâncuși (1876-1957) in his unique approach to abstraction. The intention is not to copy or represent what exists, but to discover what ideas and emotions can be evoked through the use of new forms and materials. "His artwork shows a vision of the human being established through its relationship to the environment [...] and the tools we use to shape the world" Lynne Cooke, 2003
