"Through grand voyages of her own, camera in tow, [Tacita Dean] has shown a predilection for the ungraspable and uncontainable; for the liminal space between fiction and reality; for buried pasts and failed utopias; for natural catastrophe, human tragedy, and fate; for that which is blown away in the wind or is left to decay imperceptibly over several decades."

Ecstatic Essays is a series of pamphlets presenting nuanced opinions on obscure topics in arts & culture.
