Richard DeaconWelsh artist Richard Deacon (b. 1949) has built an international reputation based on his public sculptures, but this Tate Britain exhibition will explore his work on all scales, including veritable room-fillers such as the serpentine 'After' (1998). Deacon, who won the Turner Prize in 1987, calls himself a 'fabricator' rather than a sculptor, using all manner of materials to create his dynamic shapes. Often, steel and wood are twisted into open forms that make the viewer consider the volumes they create. There's also foam, rubber, leather, marble, cloth, chrome or, in the case of Siege (1983-4), stacking chairs. There will also be a number of drawings on show, including an early series entitled 'It's Orpheus When They're Singing' (1978-79) from which his 3D work would later develop.

 

About Tate Britain

Overlooking the River Thames, Tate Britain was originally founded through the philanthropy of the sugar magnate Sir Henry Tate. The Tate legacy now encompasses three other galleries around the UK, including Tate Modern also in London. Dedicated to showcasing Britain's artistic talent, Tate Britain is home to the greatest collection of British art from 1500 to the present day. More about Tate Britain
