Tacita Dean
  • Edinburgh Fringe

This exhibition by acclaimed British artist Tacita Dean takes performance as its theme. From the early Foley Artist (1996) " a celebration of the unseen sound artists of film that scripts an imaginary film entirely through the efforts of two foley artists " to the bewilderingly intricate Event for a Stage (2015), in which actor Stephen Dillane delivers (in four conjoined performances) scripts given to him, page by page, by the artist, the exhibition examines performance and its relationship to narrative, the imagination and the collective effort of artist and audience in film, theatre, drawing and photogravure.
