British-European artist Tacita Dean (b.1965) has a wide-ranging practice that includes drawings, photographs, installations and collections of found objects and images, but she is best known for her use of film, and her advocacy for its preservation as an artistic medium. This year, Dean has presented three major exhibitions in London around the themes of landscape, portraiture and still life. This present exhibition complements these, but is distinct from them, exploring the artist's approaches to theatre, performance and narrative. In the context of Edinburgh's festivals, the work in this exhibition speaks to the vitality of the performing arts in the city over the summer months.
