The exhibition SOME TIME is a solo show introducing work by Richard Deacon, one of Britain’s most fascinating contemporary artists.

The thirty sculptures on display, including several recent works, are particulary diverse in size, design and material. They are presented on various locations in the museum park. The exhibition has come about in close collaboration with the artist. The central focus is on his sculpture Never Mind (1993), one of the Middelheim Museum’s key words. For his show, the original wooden version has been refabricated in stainless steel.
