Tacita Dean

Tacita Dean (b. 1965) is one of the most highly acclaimed artists of our time. She is well known for her 16mm and 35mm films, as well as championing the preservation and continued use of photochemical film and analogue mediums generally. She also makes spatially engaging chalkboard drawings, drawings on slate, photographs, prints and works using found materials. This exhibition consists of new and recent key works in which Dean explores ideas around portraiture, painting and the transience of events in nature.
