Well known for his ubiquitous bronze statues of hares, Barry Flanagan (1941"2009) was one of Britain's most original artists.

This Tate Britain exhibition focuses on the artist's earlier work, re-evaluating his role in the development of British and international sculpture by examining his studio practice from 1965 to 1982.Flanagan was an intensely introspective individual, and this exhibition examines how ideas, forms and processes interacted in the creation of his sculptures. Finally, it will explore Flanagan's engagement with literature and 'pataphysics (a branch of philosophy concerning what exists beyond metaphysics), and consider how his early work would ultimately influence the development of his hare sculptures.
