Known for creating open structures of various sizes, Richard Deacon (b. 1949) is interested in communicating through a diverse range of materials. A leading British sculptor, Deacon won the Turner Prize in 1987. His work was on display at Tate Britain in a large chronological survey featuring around 40 individual pieces from the artist's long career.

The exhibition at Tate Britain is a major overview of your work. How do you feel it has developed over time?

Today, many more people are involved, which has a significant impact on the range of materials and techniques I employ. However, in 2010 I had an exhibition at the National d'Art Contemporian in Strasbourg, with works created across a long period of time, between 1976 and 2009, and even though I could see many differences in style, I felt that they still all spoke together in the same consistent language.
