MICHAEL DEAN: LAUGHING FOR CRYING, 31 MARCH – 19 MAY

MICHAEL DEAN: LAUGHING FOR CRYING

Opening Saturday 30 March 2019. Exhibition continues: 31 March – 19 May at St Carthage Hall

Michael Dean’s immersive sculptural installations begin with his own writing, which he translates into physical form, from letter-like human-scale figures to self-published books deployed as sculptural elements within his installations. His materials are readily available, and include concrete and steel reinforcement bars. His sculptures are exposed to the elements as he works on them outdoors.

For Lismore, Michael will create a new body of work especially for the space at St Carthage Hall.
