Falling SlowlyKelland, Dean (Asylum Art Gallery, 2016)Kelland’s practice examines the construction of masculine gender stereotypes in comedy. The research draws from historical contextualisation of comedy within Post War Britain: autobiographical account, historical figure and comedy character. Cultural context, defines comedy socially and politically, and the comedian in return acts as a mirror that reflects the era’s motifs back upon itself. Dean’s practice utilises multi-disciplinary approaches that encompass performance, photography, filmmaking, and mixed media processes.
