Join artist Michael Dean as part of the Art in the City series of lectures.
Michael Dean's work, often made from cast concrete or other industrial materials, evolves from his extensive writing. Many of his sculptures, photographs and drawings are remodeled words in the artist's own enigmatic fonts and are accompanied by short, poetic texts. While exploring the transmutation of language, from the word to its graphical representation and its reading, they also often seek a direct relationship to the human body. With rough, but delicate surfaces, his sculptures invite touch and relate to the immediate architectural background.
This autumn, Michael Dean will present new works in his exhibition at Arnolfini (28 September - 17 November 2013). This lecture provides an opportunity to learn more about his practice and discuss with the artist.
