Tony Cragg - Sculptures and Drawings
2 June - 6 October 2019

To mark the installation of the sculpture ´Gabelung´ by Tony Cragg in the park at the Franz Marc Museum in 2019, drawings and other sculptures by the internationally renowned sculptor will also be exhibited.

The form of the sculpture ´Gabelung´ is rooted in a group of works entitled Rational Beings, created from around 2000 onwards, that reveals the close affinity to nature in Tony Cragg´s sculptural work. These sculptures emanate from fundamental geometrical shapes such as circles and ellipses that seem to be propelled into motion through their offset ´stacking´. "It is the underlying structure that gives the skin the tension of a membrane, on which pressure from within impacts on the circles modelled along the axis which, itself, echoes the basic structure of numerous organisms, organs, plants and animals, whereby - occasionally - even fleeting, corporealerotic associations may emerge."This personal reflection by Tony Cragg on natural growth and development processes conveyed through his sculptures can be experienced by visitors in the natural setting of the park at the Franz Marc Museum, on their way to the museum. These impressions can be intensified in the exhibition itself.
