Texts from Tony Cragg and Catherine Grenier
Interview with the artist by Marie-Laure Bernadac

With Figure out Figure in, Tony Cragg, major artist of the contemporary art scene, shows a previously unseen set of sculptures and drawings revealing his work on the relation between the inner energy of the bodies and their external shapes.

Of varied size, shape and nature, the sculptures chosen by the British artist reflect the diversity of his practice as a sculptor. His choice of materials, colors and techniques demonstrate a virtuosity where emotion, through the use of expressive and organic forms, is particularly significant. 

In addition to a text written by Tony Cragg, this book contains an essay by Catherine Grenier, assistant director of the National Museum of Modern Art – the Pompidou Center (Paris) and an interview of the artist with Marie-Laure Bernadac, in charge of the contemporary art collection at the Louvre.

There are two limited series for this title, one numbered and signed and one numbered, signed and accompanied by an enhanced drawing by the artist.
