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. The Lismore exhibition will be graced by original work of Michael’s.

Saturday the 30th of March will witness a launch event and the schedule is at 2.00 p.m.. A panel discussion which will be chaired by Charlie Porter, featuring Michael Dean, Hilary Lloyd and Caoimhin Mac Giolla Leith. This panel discussion is a free event but booking is still essential will be held in The Heritage Centre, Lismore. The exhibition will then preview between 3.00 p.m. – 6.00 p.m. and will be launched by Olivia Laing, writer and critic.
