Museo Tamayo presents the exhibition ‘Your Text Here’ dedicated to the sculptures by Michael Dean (United Kingdom, 1977). His installations can be considered writing that occurs in space, in which the objects, along with their architectural context and the spectators observing them, are all part of a system of signs. His pieces evoke both the human body and typographic shapes, in what Dean describes as a physical form of writing that uses materials normally employed in construction sites, such as concrete.
Michael Dean is a British artist, living and working in London, United Kingdom. In 2016 he was shortlisted for the Turner Prize. He graduated from Goldsmiths, University of London in 2001 with a BA Fine Art.
