Tony Cragg Drawing as Continuum

17 September 2021—9 January 2022
Haus am Waldsee, Berlin, Germany

For Tony Cragg (*1949), the laws of the universe and the digital world can be the subject of an artistic search as much as fossil finds or traces of vessels from ancient times. The multi-award-winning British sculptor, who lives in Wuppertal and Berlin, ties his ideas to abstract models as well as concrete objects and the human body. Since the 2000s, he has been creating drawings of heads and faces. Cragg renders their movement in time and space as simultaneously condensed line work. Ideas of communication, mental mobility, mirroring, liquefaction and even algorithmically controlled gestures of artificial intelligence emerge.
