Michael Dean: Analogue Lol, ShanghART, Shanghai, 03.24, 2018 - 05.13, 2018


Michael Dean starts his work with writing - which then abstracted into human-scale sculptures, using industrial and daily materials such as concrete, steel, cement, reinforcement. Dean explores the three-dimensional possibilities of language by ‘spelling out’ his words through the alphabet of concrete barricades, corrugated shutters drilled with peepholes, the contagion of stickers, dyed books, casts of his and his families’ fists and fingers. Dean’s practice is not about presenting recognisable or readable words, but rather about the visible presence and an intimate perspective of himself on his own dealings with text and form, a disclosure of the personal.
