Tacita Dean’s patient and sensitive approach to her subject matter is explored in conversation with Hans Ulrich Obrist in this collection of in-depth interviews.
In her Berlin studio, at a conference and on a train journey they discuss her film portraits of architectural structures and personalities, such as Mario Merz, Michael Hamburger and Merce Cunningham; her fervent collection and reworking of analogue material – postcards, four-leaf clovers, albumen prints – and the things that have informed and influenced her artistic output.
The result is a broad and invaluable introduction to one of the most important artists of the time, full of fascinating anecdotes and insights into her working methods, illustrated with black-and-white images of her work.
