Rita McKeough: dig as deep as the darkness

Presented By: Richmond Art Gallery


"dig as deep as the darkness" is an immersive media installation that proposes an abstractive narrative of an excavation site that reveals subterranean layers below an imagined city. It is a precarious site but resonant with the voices of resistance in the natural world. Rita McKeough is an installation and performance artist based in Calgary. Her work incorporates audio, electronics and mechanical
performing objects. Since the late 70s, McKeough has been committed to creating chaotic and immersive installations that reconfigure contradictions and tensions in our everyday lives. She uses interactive technologies to represent complex interspecies relationships and to create links between her installations and sound and music practices. McKeough consistently works from a feminist perspective, and her recent work focuses on the environmental impacts of land development and the industrial extraction of natural resources. Guest curated by Dylan McHugh. Opening Fri, July 19 at 7:00pm
