Judith Dean: Phase 4

11 October – 30 November 2013 

Wednesday – Saturday, 11am–5pm

Exhibition Preview: Friday 11 October, 6-8pm

Judith Dean’s work is concerned with ideas of territory and claiming, value and exchange.

Phase 4 makes use of Beaconsfield’s entire site to present an installation – produced “all at the push of a button” – that reflects on the ubiquity of imagery in a digital age.

Previous works have conflated the epic and the everyday in a variety of forms – installations, objects, videos and performances. In 2005 Judith Dean was the winner of the Jerwood Sculpture Prize. Since May 2013 she has been in residence with Beaconsfield. Working in the expansive spaces of Beaconsfield, is in Dean’s words, “like being allowed to fly”.

During her Beaconsfield residency Dean has revisited, reconfigured and reconstituted certain earlier works, moving into a new methodology, and now presents genuine artifice for the real world.
