    ‘Much of what is encountered in Tacita Dean’s art is stirringly elusive. Like Werner Herzog chasing mirages in his esoteric documentary Fata Morgana , or like Bas Jan Ader forever lost “in search of the miraculous,” Dean is consumed by mystery. She demonstrates lasting delight in traces, apparitions, transcendent possibilities, yet there is an inexorable drift towards distraction and disappointment; the prevailing tone is elegiac. Often, we are brought to the brink of revelation - we may even catch a glimpse of ardently sought-after marvels - only for the epiphanic moment and any sure grasp of its significance to instantly pass, to flicker into nothingness.’

    In terms of its emotional and intellectual impact, this a truly monumental work, and yet this is just a piece of paper pinned to the wall. Its sculptural strength and sublime Romantic impact (reminiscent of the art of Caspar David Friedrich, which, living in Berlin, Dean probably sees a lot of) come from actual aesthetic achievement.,,2048866,00.html

    Dean’s camera follows Hamburger as he goes about his business. Maybe he’s in his study, reading something, with the smoke curling over his shoulder. We sneak up behind him. The sound of his exhalations and the smacking of his lips are so poignant we can almost taste the tobacco burning his throat.
