of an alphabet |
Keating's work deals with issues of consumerism, architecture, and ontological
speculations between media, art and everyday experience. In parts of
an alphabet at super bien! he has continued his investigations
into the ‘stand in’ object with duplications of everyday
printed media and objects.
He installed drawings in the greenhouse of meticulously hand painted
pages from newspapers and copies of autumn leaves which seemed to indicate
a psychical invasion of debris and ephemera from beyond the structure.
On closer inspection the newspapers have been intentionally defaced;
on one the words “EVOL - LOVE” are cut and appear mirrored
from the centre of the paper and another has a typical psychologists
ink blot and into the third a complex series of mirrored geometric forms,
further individualising and obscuring these reproductions from their
pulp media counterparts.
