See it in Dice

One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action, and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?

See it in Dice

Tony Cragg into FIAC, the International Contemporary Art Fair in Paris. He has the dice to prove it. 

The British sculptor's known for creating large-scale pieces with non-traditional media -- he used trash in the '70s, glass bottles in the '90s. Last week, he unveiled a collection of die-covered pieces in the Grand Palais.

"There is this idea that sculpture is static, or maybe even dead, but I feel absolutely contrary to that," he writes. "I'm not a religious person--I'm an absolute materialist--and for me material is exciting and ultimately sublime. When I'm involved in making sculpture, I'm looking for a system of belief or ethics in the material. I want that material to have a dynamic, to push and move and grow."

In 2008, Cragg opened a sculpture park in Germany, where he currently works and lives. For more information, visit his official website.
