Michael Dean: Having You On

Friday 22 June 2018Sunday 30 September 2018

Immersive sculptural installation by artist Michael Dean (b. Newcastle upon Tyne, 1977), created for the Great Exhibition of the North. Using his own writing as a starting point, Dean gives language material form, creating moulds and casts of words and incorporating pages from his own personal texts and self-published books. Referring to concrete as a 'democratic ceramic', Dean also uses other inexpensive and readily available materials such as MDF, shuttering ply, sand, steel and corrugated metal to make objects and environments which demonstrate and, in some instances, literally spell out the writing from which the work takes its origin.
