Tacita Dean - La puerta del Diablo - 2021
As part of the exhibition Barbara Hepworth: Art & Life, The Hepworth Wakefield commissioned artist Tacita Dean to create a new artwork, Significant Form. For the commission, Dean selected 130 postcards from her found postcard collection, which she gathered at flea markets over many decades. The images have been re-photographed and photochemically hand-printed at various scales and on a variety of papers. Inspired by her shared interests with Hepworth, Dean selected images that depicted a representation of, or potential for, sculptural form, creating an intuitive journey through objects and formations found in the natural world, to others made by artists across time. In addition to the commission Dean generously selected one of the works from the installation to be reproduced as a limited edition, with all profits supporting the ambitious learning and exhibition programmes at the gallery.
