Laura Kay Keeling (Canada, 1986) is a visual artist whose work encompasses analog photography / video, collage and installation based projects. Exploring concepts relating to reciprocal care, she has begun to shift her practice to include elements from plants and flowers that she has grown or have foraged from other folks’ garden clippings. She scans, photographs, presses and repeats.
«I started BONFIRE thinking that I would have a final «piece» to share, but through conversations and through exploration of my own artistic practice, realized that my process in itself is quite a loop that I find myself in. Documenting the process that I repeat for each leaf, petal, flower, piece of honeycomb or stone that then gets used (potentially) in many different pieces in the future. This is a loop I’m sharing with you.»
