OUT NOW! Not exactly Abramovic but RICHARD DEACON – IN BETWEEN still portrays a modest but prolific artist.

After biopics on Abramovic and Kiefer comes one on Turner Prize winner Richard Deacon: a slightly less compelling subject. However, his modesty, insistence on craftsmanship, and willingness to share credit and ideas with sculptor colleague Matthew Perry mark him as a true workshop artist whose vast, free-standing or -floating work is well presented here as part of both a social and private context.

Richard Deacon – In Between | Directed by Claudia Schmid (Germany 2012) documentary with Richard Deacon, Matthew Perry. Starts April 25
