This site documents Mark Dean’s exhibited art works. Dean began looping appropriated film in the 1970’s while studying photography and painting, and in the 1980’s extended this technique into musical loops while working as a DJ and playing in bands. These practices were eventually combined in the methodology for which Dean became recognised as a video & sound artist from the 1990’s onwards, with early solo shows at City Racing, Casa de las Conchas, and Ikon, and international survey exhibitions including Black Box Recorder, Video Vibe, and Planet B. Later solo installations include The Beginning of the End, Beaconsfield; Christian Disco, Museum Boijmans van Beuningen; and Stations of the Resurrection, St Paul’s Cathedral. Dean’s work has been commissioned by Barbican, ICA, and Imperial War Museum, and is held in museum collections including Leeds Art Gallery, Mudam Luxembourg, and the Saastamoinen Foundation. In 2009 Dean received a Paul Hamlyn Award for Artists, and in 2010 was ordained in the Church of England; recent projects have included liturgical events and choreographic collaborations in addition to gallery installations.
