In parallel with her film on the sisters of the South Presentation Convent in Cork, in 2005 Tacita Dean created four alabaster panels, arranged to represent and replace the four windows of the convent chapel, while keeping their original size. 

Highlighting the material’s translucency, offering passage between one space to another, they are wondrous curiosities of nature while retaining a poetic, metaphysical quality.
