Richard Deacon has been awarded with the Turner Price in 1987 and the Order of the British Empire. His sculpture works from 80´s are one of the most important, observed and distinctive art pieces not only if we compare them to the ones of his English contemporaries. Moreover, his work has been displayed in the prominent institutions around the world and he has realised several monumental realisations from California to Tokio.
The presentation of Deacon´s work is slightly limited by the Municipal Library´s options, however visitors can see the broadest possible range of his works in which he used thoroughly industrial materials; and admire his last ceramic objects in which he went beyond the borders of this traditional technique.
