Tacita Dean, b. 1965 in Canterbury, England, lives and works in Berlin and London.
A key element in Tacita Dean’s fragile visual narratives is the unknown. Anonymous sources form the basis of much of her practice, characterized by methods of collecting material. Archives of memories, narratives, close and distant acquaintances, objects, landscapes and remarkable incidents are gently planted in the works as seeds for a new story that extends beyond the images into the viewer’s personal realm.
