In Erotica: Flora Vs. FaunaErotica // Wednesday, 29 Jun 2011
Shannon Keller uses simple, intimate and immediate means. Parts anatomical, botanical, animal and mechanical, she reworks the ‘guts’ and metaphorically reinterprets them. She interweaves the internal and external, the physical and metaphysical, the individual and collective.... Often eliminating background and focusing entirely on the finest details, her subjects have little or no context, they occupy no known territories. This grants Keller’s work access to focus on the sublime and the visceral. Her installations, based on associations, act as portals to an inner dialogue in which the viewer is compelled to participate.
