Tony Cragg at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, West Bretton, UK
New sculptures, drawings and works drawn from nearly five decades of Cragg’s practice surveyed and demonstrated the artist’s pioneering and continued mastery of materials in the Underground Gallery and open air. A ‘radical materialist’, Cragg defines sculpture as a ‘rare category of objects’, and takes a taxonomic approach to his own practice, something which was reflected in the exhibition. The wit and will to analyse the properties of all of the planet’s resources and use them to make new things is unique to human beings, along with the intuition to sort, order and categorise the things that exist and that we bring into existence.
