Tony Cragg is regarded as one of the most influential British sculptors of his generation. His oeuvre centres on people's multi- faceted relationships with their environment and with real objects. In the early seventies Cragg started collecting objects from his surroundings, ordering them and placing them in relationship to his own body. Only a few years later he supplemented his formal approach with a sculptural and metaphorical meaning. During the eighties he produced sculptures that create associations with everyday objects without depicting the object in a mimetic way. In recent years the associative objectivity of his sculptures has given way to an increasingly abstract form of relationship to the object. Focusing on the artist's earliest and more recent sculptures, this book presents examples from all the phases of his work. Documentary photographs of his activities in the early seventies and drawings from various periods round off the picture. The collected writings of Tony Cragg are published here for the first time.
