Michael Dean works across sculpture, photography, drawing and performance, all of which are rooted in his writing and the publication of his work as text in both exhibition and book form. As a precursor to Dean’s Turner Prize nominated exhibition, Sic Glyphs, 2016 at the South London Gallery, he produced an exclusive and very limited edition sculpture.
Dean’s forms in concrete, naked steel reinforcement (rebar) and other do-it-yourself materials invoke the physical reality of contemporary urban surfaces. Twisted and contorted, propped up or tied down, these apparently abstract ‘glyphs’ are never completely without figurative potential, occupying an indeterminate territory all of their own.
