  Tony Cragg. In 4D
From Flowing to steadiness
Venice, C Pesaro International Gallery of Modern Art, 27th August 2010 9th January 2011
Roberto Cantini
 
   

This is a project properly conceived for the premises of C Pesaro by one of the protagonists of the British sculpture of our times, Tony Cragg (Liverpool, 1949).

In the exhibition we can admire 40 works in glass, bronze, steel, plastic, wood, stone, but also 20 among drawings, preliminary sketches and watercolours, realised during thirty years of activity, and most of them have never been exhibited before now in Italy.

These works witness in a perfect good shape the meanings of the different languages and of the products used to achieve them, and overall they have a close comparison with the premises and the other works that have been previously displayed in a museum.

The basic interest by Tony Cragg is the creation of objects and images that do not exist in the natural world but they can reflect and give information and sensations about the world and our existence.

The exhibition is cared by Silvio Fuso and Jon Wood, it is a co-production with Fondazione Musei Civici Venezia and KunstMeran/Merano Arte ( where will take place from 5 th February up to 28 th May 2011) and also in co-operation with Galleria Michela Rizzo and Caterina Tognon Arte Contemporanea, Venice. The catalogue is published by Marsilio.
