Tony Cragg (born 9 April 1949) is a British visual artist specialized in sculpture. He is currently the director of the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf.
“There is this idea that sculpture is static, or maybe even dead, but I feel absolutely contrary to that. I’m not a religious person – I’m an absolute materialist – and for me material is exciting and ultimately sublime. When I’m involved in making sculpture, I’m looking for a system of belief or ethics in the material. I want that material to have a dynamic, to push and move and grow."
“I also want that to happen over the course of making things, so that as soon as one generation of sculptures has gone up, another generation is coming on and things are growing up around me. That’s how it seems to work for me.”
