    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 lie very close to each other.”

    This is the first time that an exhibition is devoted to Richard Deacon’s drawings. Approximately 150 works from five decades are shown – from the artist’s early beginnings up to the present day. Almost all of the works have never before been shown to the public.
