‘Mind-boggling structures in a stunning landscape’: Tony Cragg: A Rare Category of Objects, review

Apparently Cragg was interested in fossils as a youth. Small wonder then that now, a famous sculptor, he sees manmade objects as “fossilized keys to a past time which is our present”. That’s perhaps a clue to his work, difficult though it is to understand: “how did he dream up the ideas and processes that brought these mind-boggling structures into being in the first place?” An extended video interview (1 hour) is here.
