Major Achievements: Tacida
Dean
OBE
(born
1965)
She
graduated
from
Falmouth
in
1988.
Tacida
is
a
visual
artist
who
works
primarily
in
film.
She
is
one
of
the
Young
British
Artists,
and
was
a
nominee
for
the
Turner
Prize
in
1998.
She
lives
and
works
in
Berlin.
Her
grandfather
was
Basil
Dean,
the
founder
of
Ealing
Studios.
She
is
best
known
for
her
work
in
16mm
film,
although
she
utilises
a
variety
of
media
including
drawing,
photography
and
sound.
Her
films
often
employ
long
takes
and
a
motionless
camera,
creating
a
contemplative
atmosphere.
Since
the
mid-­‐1990s
her
films
have
not
included
commentary,
but
are
instead
accompanied
by
often,
understated
optical
sound
tracks.
The
sea
(especially
in
the
90’s)
was
a
persistent
theme
in
her
work.
Perhaps
most
famously,
she
explored
the
tragic
maritime
misadventures
of
Donald
Crowhurst,
an
amateur
English
sailor
whose
ambition
to
enter
a
race
to
solo
circumnavigate
the
globe
ended
in
deception,
existential
crisis
and,
eventually,
tragedy.
