Richard Deacon (*1949 Bangor/Wales) is one of the most important sculptors worldwide. He rose to prominence with large-format as well as delicate sculptures that provide astounding new interpretations of the relationship between both inside and outside or what is open and closed. Deacon is also passionate about drawing, an activity that is highly significant for him: “I believe drawing and thinking are very close to each other.”
We were allowed to accompany the artist during his setup of his exhibits at the Museum Folkwang Essen, Langen Foundation Neuss and the Sculpture Museum by the Thomas Schütte Foundation. Many thanks!
