The hour-long epic "Antigone" bespeaks the British-European artist's extraordinary ability to interweave mythological figures, personal history, and chance. Her primary medium is analog film, which she cherishes for its technical versatility and grainy brilliance. Yet she is also a master of other genres and practices such as photography, printmaking, drawing, and writing. The idea for Antigone had been on her mind for decades: Antigone is the name of her older sister, but also of the eponymous tragic heroine of the play by Sophocles. Ever since her first encounter with the myth of King Oedipus, Dean had wondered about what happens in the interval during which the blind exiled ruler, attended by his daughter and sister Antigone, wanders the wilderness.
