Artist Talk

Shelagh Keeley

Since 1980, Shelagh Keeley has been executing wall drawing installations that are both site-specific and temporary. Using a combined process of drawing, photography and collage, she maps space and time through gesture. Privileging slowness, Keeley’s intuitive conceptual practice involves the body and draws on instinctive intelligence. In her talk, Keeley will address her new commissioned wall drawing Notes on Obsolescence within the context of her larger practice, showing documentation of her many international wall installations from the past 35 years, which now cease to exist due to the ephemeral nature of her work.
