Tiago Cruz’s inspiration for this work came from a visit to renowned contemporary art fairs in Kassel and Münster. Inspired by the aesthetics of contemporary sculpture – whose ideological foundation he could at the time identify only with difficulty – led Cruz to create imitations on the boundary of unexplainable admiration and loving parody. In his most recent works, he has expanded this approach onto types of sculptures that could be installations just as well as works of art in the current tradition of a reformulated modernism.
