16 May – 29 June 2013
Judith Dean is in residence with Beaconsfield until November 2013. Installed in the Upper Space from 16 May until the end of June, Dean will be available to the public for conversation about her work in progress.
Dean’s work is concerned with ideas of territory and claiming, conflating the epic and the everyday, negotiating the omnipresence of cliché. Whilst in the Upper Space at Beaconsfield she will be revisiting, reconfiguring, reconstituting earlier work (comprising installation, sculpture, video and performance) through introduction, occupation, adaptation and economy. New work will simultaneously be in covert development – to be exhibited venue-wide in the Autumn.
This is the fourth in the Beaconsfield series Phase, which turns the spotlight on mid-career artists with whom the organisation has a significant relationship. Judith Dean has been an active contributor to the development of Beaconsfield’s Fraternise scheme since 2006.
