Recently on view at BOSI Contemporary, New York was a solo exhibition by Dean Dempsey, which featured a body of work created predominantly while at a residency in Munich. Dempsey expands his oeuvre to incorporate videos and paintings in addition to his photography. Eliminating himself as subject, he steps behind the camera lending a voyeuristic eye to his evocative images. Instead of shying away from this taboo, Dempsey celebrates voyeurism as a reality of life. He positions the visitor as the voyeur watching provocative women masquerade through ethereal, unknown landscapes. Subversively sexual, yet physically distant, Dempsey controls these scenes with candor pushing the viewer in then out again.
Dempsey is a contributor for SFAQ interviewing various artists, gallerists, and curators including Mark Flood, Kembra Pfahler, Michel Blancsubé, Viva Ruiz, and more. Above is a video released in conjunction with his solo exhibition and in collaboration with CREEM magazine.
