  • Catalogue Essay

    "A beautiful example of a frightening theme is the sculpture entitled Vivarium. One tree divided mid-way, like “Bermuda Shorts', Cragg says, another is from rough barked pine and the third shaped like an ice-hockey stick. The clinging tyres suggest the perversion it is to manufacture substances that do not rot once they become redundant. In luminous marble plaster, the sculture is a marvellous spectre.” C. Lampert Tony Cragg XLIII Biennale di Venezia, London 1988, p. 39-40.
