This is the first major solo exhibition by Scottish, London-based artist Morag Keil, spanning the past eight years of her career.
Keil works in installation, film, painting and drawing, and often collaborates with fellow artists. Her work frequently adopts a lo-fi, pared back aesthetic, incorporating everyday objects and found materials, alongside digital innovations that affect domestic life, such as home automation.
The show includes new and existing works, reconceived for this presentation. A key work exhibited is a remodelled version of Passive Aggressive (2016–present), a video comprising clips from animated advertisements, the opening sequence to Big Brother and close-up footage of motorbikes parked on the street.
In bringing together a substantial body of work, this exhibition aims to show how Keil’s practice offers one of the most insightful and eloquent considerations of how a world increasingly mediated by technology and digital communication is impacting on our day-to-day existence.
