O Tony Cragg συνομιλεί με την Ξένια Γερουλάνου
(Tony Cragg in conversation with Xenia Geroulanou)
The artist Tony Cragg, on the occasion of the opening of his solo exhibition at the Benaki Museum - Pireos Street Annexe (exhibition opening Tuesday 8 September 2015), Tony Cragg will have a conversation with Xenia Geroulanou, Curatorial Director of the Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac, Paris/Salzburg.

Tony Cragg was born in Liverpool in 1949. He began his education by focusing on technical studies that led him to work in a biochemistry laboratory before embarking on his art studies. He was awarded his M.A. from the Royal College of Art in London in 1977. He has resided in Wuppertal, Germany since 1979, and teaches at Düsseldorf Academy of Fine Arts. Cragg’s innovative use of urban and industrial detritus opened up a new territory for sculpture at the same time as dealing with environmental and social concerns in post-industrial Britain. Cragg represented Britain at the XLIII Venice Biennale in 1988 and was awarded the Turner Prize the same year.

His sculptures that will be presented at the exhibition have been mainly made of wood, bronze, stone and mirror-finished stainless steel.
