Flawed Masculinities: The Englishman's Panacea (Performance Film)Kelland, Dean (Show One, 2016-05-23)In this window exhibition, PhD Fine Art graduate (2016) Dean Kelland will be exhibiting sketchbooks relating to his PhD research entitled Flawed Masculinities: “Rupturing” 1950s/60s/70s British TV Sitcom via a Performance-led Interdisciplinary Arts Practice and screening a film The Englishman’s Panacea. Dean’s research project examines the construction of masculine gender stereotypes in selected situation comedies from the 1950’s, 1960’s and 1970’s. The research draws from historical contextualisation of situation comedy within Post War Britain: autobiographical account, historical figure and sitcom character. Dean’s practice utilises multi-disciplinary approaches that encompass performance, photography, filmmaking, and mixed media processes.
