The Buchmann Galerie is delighted to announce the exhibition Sculpture by Tony Cragg. 

The exhibition focuses on mayor large-format sculptures from key series of work from recent years. Tony Cragg’s complex investigations into the relationship between body, material, object and space are particularly evident in the large-format works. Cragg derives both the conception of content and the diverse vocabulary of forms from his examination of organic life forms and microbiological structures as well as from his work with mundane everyday materials and modern technology.

Tony Cragg represented Great Britain at the 43rd Venice Biennale and won the Turner Prize in the same year. In 2016 he was made a Knight Bachelor of the British Empire. His work has been recognised in over 70 solo exhibitions worldwide in the last 10 years alone, including at the Musée du Louvre, Paris, Hermitage St Petersburg, CAFA Museum Beijing and Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art, as well as outdoor exhibitions at Boboli Gardens, Florence and Yorkshire Sculpture Park, UK. The artist has lived and worked in Wuppertal, Germany since 1977. 


Buchmann Galerie has represented the artist since 1983.
