Tacita Dean - Billboard for Edinburgh

August 4 - November 26, 2009

Tacita Dean will be the fifth artist to take part in Ingleby Gallery's unique public art project.

 

At the centre of Tacita Dean's image is a large stone from a megalithic tomb or dolmen. The image comes from a series of works in which the artist photographs ancient burial sites and manipulates the image by painting over the printed photograph. The act of isolating the background gives the stone a strange and imposing sculptural quality and removes it from its historical context.

 

Dean's billboard, Floating Dolmen will be on display from 5 August - 31 October 2009.

 

As part of the Billboard for Edinburgh project, Tacita Dean has produced an original limited edition print of her billboard image. For full details, please visit the prints and editions section of our website.
