Tacita Dean : Landscape, Portrait, Still Life
A beautiful book exploring the work of British artist, Tacita Dean
British artist Tacita Dean (born 1964) first came to the attention of the art world with her surrealistic 16-mm film “The Story of Beard” (1992), making a name for herself as part of the Young British Artists generation. Dean was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1998 and has since been a vocal advocate for the medium of film.
This book accompanies major exhibitions at three of London’s leading art institutions: the National Gallery, the National Portrait Gallery and the Royal Academy of Arts which each explore the filmmaker’s work through a different lens: landscape, portrait and still life. Tacita Dean: Landscape, Portrait, Still Life unites the three exhibitions in one elegant volume. Works drawn from Dean’s entire career to the present day are brought together with texts by leading writers Alexandra Harris, Alan Hollinghurst and Ali Smith providing unique insights into Dean’s vision.
The book provides a new and authoritative view on a hugely influential filmmaker who has been at the cutting edge of British art for over 20 years and is published with three different covers.
