n°36 - Tacita Dean

Tacita Dean was born in Canterbury (UK) in
1965. She lives and works in Berlin and London.
Trained as a painter, she now works in a variety of
media, including drawing, photography and
sound, but is best known for her 16mm films.
Since the beginning of the 1990s, Tacita Dean has
been traveling throughout the world on a quest for
singular images and sounds that make up the
material for her work. The cyclical nature of time
and processes of disappearance and appearance are
central themes of her work. By sharing her own
experiences with the spectator in a perceptible way,
she calls up a memory that is as personal as it is
collective.On her project for point d’ironie,
she explains:
“ For a long time now, I have been going to the
flea market and buying postcards. I have started
several mini-collections of subjects that attract me,
because as any junk junkie knows, once you have
found that second version of something you have
already started your collection. So at a certain
point, I began finding deformed trees; trees that
were grown into personalities through age or
freakery and had become subjects for those
anonymous jobbing photographers of the last
century. And then, it became about the pleasure
of picking up a paintbrush again after a long
– Tacita Dean
