KEEM is a collaboration between artists Kate Elliott and Emma McGarry. It was established in 2011, as an exploration into the nature of collaboration. Through methodology, ongoing discussion and debate, KEEM produces work which continuously questions subjectivity, materiality and identity.
During the month-long residency at the Farringdon Factory, KEEM have been busy working on two projects - Here I Stand for Five MinutesandLight Map. Each half of KEEM, Kate Elliott and Emma McGarry, initiated one of the two projects, both in relation to their own, independent work at the Factory.
Through creating small photographic
installations made out of light-sensitive paper, in Light MapKEEM document
the movement of light throughout the space. By performing certain acts
and movements, they play with the subtle shifts in light, exploring if and how this can be translated from
three-dimensional objects into two-dimensional forms.
