Richard Deacon Think Like an Artist

Animation inspired by sculptor Richard Deacon's responses to the question 'where do ideas come from?'

Artist and former Turner Prize winner Richard Deacon uses unformed basic materials to make sculptures that explore ideas that define human experience through language and the senses. Although the forms devised by Deacon are fundamentally abstract in appearance, they playfully reference the human body and world – Art For Other People #14 1984, The Eye Has It 1984, If The Shoe Fits 1981. In an outtake from a previous TateShots interview Deacon lightheartedly tells us where inspiration comes from.
