Victoria J Dean: The Fortified Coastline | 6 Oct - 24 Nov, Millenium Court Arts Centre, Portadown

The Fortified Coastline exhibition by Victoria J. Dean runs until 24 November 2012 at the Millennium Court Arts Centre, Portadown. The work focuses on the built environment of the coastline around Ireland.

Dean's work highlights the many overlooked, often absurd or jarring aspects of the contemporary coastal environment. She records the different eras of seaside architecture in their various states of regeneration and disrepair: from the brutal whimsy of public lavatories to 'temporary' containers, pared back promenades resembling prison perimeters and modern, functional leisure areas.
