About

Mark Dean’s first looped video appropriation work was made whilst studying photography and painting in the late 1970’s, and in the 1980’s this work was extended into musical loops as a DJ and playing in bands. These practices were eventually combined in the methodology for which Dean became recognised as a video and sound artist, regularly exhibiting nationally and internationally from the 1990’s onwards, and with work represented in museum collections in the UK and abroad. In 2010 Dean was ordained in the Church of England, and since this time has tried to understand and live out a vocation as artist and priest; recent projects have explored the performative potential of video and sound work, particularly in liturgical and choreographic contexts.
