Product story

Tacita Dean is considered among the most important living British artists. Best known for her filmmaking, which has taken her all over the world, she is a passionate defender of analogue methods. This authoritative publication brings together her writings with a complete filmography. Dean’s insightful and informative writing is key to understanding her works and interests. She reveals a wide range of influences, from seascapes to documentary, and an intimate study of the nature of film itself. Her projects are populated with the figures she admires, including the artists David Hockney and Cy Twombly, the poet Michael Hamburger and the legendary choreographer Merce Cunningham. 

Beautifully illustrated throughout with film stills, archival photographs and related artworks, these two volumes map Dean’s career up to and including her three major exhibitions in London in 2018, and provide – in the artist’s own words – an unparalleled insight into the stories behind her work.

Tacita Dean is the subject of three major exhibitions in London in 2018 at the National Portrait Gallery, the National Gallery and the Royal Academy of Arts. In 1998 she was nominated for the Turner Prize for her short film Disappearance at Sea.

The two volumes are 304 and 288 pages each, with 450 colour illustrations.
