Description

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--even if Dean's slow, subtle films would seem to have little in common with the raucous works of her peers. Dean was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1998 and has since been a vocal advocate for the medium of film.

In 2018, Dean brings major exhibitions to three of London's leading art institutions: the National Gallery, the National Portrait Gallery and the Royal Academy of Arts. Each exhibition will provide an encounter with 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 stunning survey 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.

Tacita Dean: Landscape, Portrait, Still Life, published at a career-defining moment for the artist, 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. The book is published with three different covers
