Welcome to the website of artist, teacher and writer Rebecca Keller.
My work is research driven, complicit with site, often participatory, and focuses on the intersection between art, audience, and the wider culture, negotiating the terrain between private meaning-making and public symbolism.
Much of my recent work falls under the umbrella title "Excavating History" : interventions, publications, exhibitions and programs that investigate the idea of history as a category and engine for artmaking.
The artworks shown here include projects done in sites ranging from Victorian mansions to 17th century anatomical theaters; from historic gardens to the studio of famous sculptors, as well as white cube art museums. Materials and methods include everything from plasticine to embroidery, household cast-offs to vinyl text, collage and digital techniques.
