The British sculptor Anthony Douglas Cragg, known as Tony Cragg, takes a particular interest in the industrial world and its products. He repurposes the waste of a consumer society and engages in a process of formal recycling articulated around colour or family themes. Waste and recovered objects thus constitute a kind of contemporary archaeology. From landfill site to exhibition hall, the notion of "doing something with nothing" prevails.
