Tate Britain: Exhibition
5 February – 27 April 2014
I spent about 4 hours doing a drawing of ‘art for other people’ on one day as you could not take photos in the exhibition. It was also quite enjoyable spending time in one room and listening to all the people talking about the work and chatting to small children who were also sketching Deacon’s art and had some imaginative ideas about what you could use them for. One girl thought the piece on the left could be a handbag and the tall cylinder was a magic potion bottle from a story she had read. There was a surprising amount of artists drawing his sculptures.
