About

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