Richard Deacon at Tate Britain

From to


Turner Prize winning artist Richard Deacon is the subject of an elaborate new exhibition being housed at Tate Britain. One of Britain’s leading sculptors, Deacon’s memorable and inventive work is famous for both playing with form and for the novel use of apparently unsuitable materials.

Describing himself as a ‘fabricator’, his efforts are usually open structures where form isn’t held in check by its shape but instead by where the boundary edge of the work lies. Featuring sculptures both large and small, the exhibition includes around 40 of his pieces, with a highlight being the snake like After, a work that plays with the sense of interior and exterior.
