16th November 2013 - 14th February 2014
Wolverhampton Art Gallery, Wolverhampton
Dean Kellend is a Birmingham-based artist.Using a combination of performance, film-making, collage, and print work re-visits popular masculine figures from British sitcoms of the 1950’s, ’60’s and ’70’s in order to explore our collective cultural identities, and stereotypical representations of masculinity in particular.
His new film, entitles ‘No Hiding Place’ (2013), is influenced by Oscar Rejlander’s picture Rejlander the Photographer introducing Rejlander the Volunteer. Like Rejlander, Kelland embodies the dual roles of the artists and perforer to explore shared interests in identity and social divisions. This is a special commission byWolverhampton Art Gallery to support our programme of exhibitions and events which celebrate the enduring influence of Victorian photography on artists working today.
