David Keating

His most recent work The Objects produced in Los Angeles involves a series of generic abstractions exhibited side by side that an actor re-arranges into new compositions and uses to perform a series of choreographed movements around the gallery. The movements of the actor are incredibly slow and the formal simplicity of her gestures positions her as more of a intermediate cipher between object and audience reinforcing a skepticism towards traditional conventions of display whilst creating a new dramatized version of it. David Keating was born Melbourne, Australia. He currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany. He has been included in exhibitions including Show me don’t tell me for the Brussels Biennial and Tales from the Travel Journal vol. 1 at the Contemporary Art Centre Vilnius, Lithuania.
