On February 21, 2014, UK artist Richard Deacon joined German film director Claudia Schmid in Toronto for the world premiere of the documentary Richard Deacon -- In Between.
This video documents a post-premiere discussion between Deacon, Schmid and Toronto gallerist Benjamin Diaz of Diaz Contemporary.
Richard Deacon, one of contemporary art's most important sculptors, has an interest in space and pushing the limits of material, leading to works with a profound sense of movement and complexity.
Director Claudia Schmid spent two years observing Deacon and his work, resulting in her intimate portrait of the notoriously shy artist.
This event was part of the 2014 Reel Artists Film Festival, a program of the Canadian Art Foundation. For more information, visit canadianart.ca/raff.
