Some Time: Richard Deacon at Antwerp’s Middleheim Museum

More a chatty piece than a review, but such is English coverage of art in Europe. Deacon is an eminent contemporary sculptor though he modestly calls himself a ‘fabricator’. He mostly works in everyday materials and leaves the construction details visible as if to emphasise that art objects are no more worthy than any other manmade objects: they all “link the human subject to the world at large”. An excellent video (5 min) is here.
