ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum (Aarhus, Denmark): Objects of Wonder
- Richard Deacon born 1949
- Marble and leather
- Object: 190 × 300 × 400 mm
- Purchased 2010
This work belongs to Deacon’s ongoing series of small scale sculptures, Art For Other People. It brings together two components made from very different materials, marble and leather: one cold and hard, the other pliable and tactile. The curves of the marble are suggestive of the shape of heavy animal horns. It sits on the pale pinkish-brown leather component, which appears to be stitched into the form of seed pods or petals.
