At the Thomas Schütte Foundation, also in Neuss, floor-hugging sculptures by Deacon will be presented as part of his exhibition 'Under the Weather'. These flat, ceramic works bear mineral-rich glazes and evoke shifting topographies, constellations and biological formations. Curated by Dieter Schwarz, the exhibition runs from 4 September until the end of December.
