This exhibition provides an opportunity for a rediscovery of Cripps’ work which is presented on a large scale for the first time at Museum Tinguely. 

The oeuvre of British artist Stephen Cripps (1952-1982) was highly innovative and experimental. His works developed out of an interest for kinetic sculpture and machines as well as from a fascination for the poetic potential of explosion and destruction. He pushed the boundaries with his radical performances, many of which even now would be unthinkable due to their potential danger to the audience and their immediate surrounds. Cripps developed many of his projects in the medium of drawing and collage, which provide an insight into his rich and unconventional mindset.
