"Caldera", Anthony Cragg

7th art project Salzburg Walk of Modern Art - Würth Collection: Anthony Cragg - "Caldera" (2008) at Makartplatz

The English sculptor Anthony Cragg has installed an approximately 5 metre-high sculpture made of patinated bronze. Within its structures, the viewer can discern human outlines, which, depending on location and perspective, suddenly appear, interact spatially and then vanish just as quickly. The title "Caldera" is a geological term denoting a volcanic crater.

Here, the artist is exploring space and matter suffused with the energy and emotion unleashed by dramatic processes. And, not least, he is alluding to the bowl-like location of Salzburg itself. Anthony Cragg conceives his work as a 'mental landscape', which can be experienced even inside the walkable 'cauldron'.
