For Tony Cragg's first solo exhibition in China since his major presentation at CAFA Museum in Beijing in 2012, the artist presents a selection of powerful recent works in bronze, stone and wood. These sculptures—composite, polymorphic entities that are stacked and layered like geological plates—highlight the distinguished practice of an artist who has been hugely influential since the 1970s. This is Cragg's sixteenth exhibition with Lisson Gallery, many decades after his first show on Bell Street, London in 1979, but his first in Shanghai. The artist's studio is situated in Wuppertal, Germany, where Cragg also hosts exhibitions at his sculpture park, Waldfrieden.
